Another officer arrived to help, when Brandy Finch got out of the driver’s side and ran off. She was arrested following a brief pursuit, after initially providing a false name.

Officers found her purse inside the vehicle, containing 10 oxycodone pills. Finch was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, theft by receiving stolen property, criminal impersonation, resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer.
