Marissa Lucero

An 18-year-old Milwaukee woman was arrested on operating while intoxicated offense -- her second such offense this year -- on Tuesday after leading deputies on a chase reaching speeds of 100 mph, authorities said.

It began just after midnight when deputies saw a vehicle driven by Marissa Lucero going 71 in a 50 mph zone, KTLA sister station WITI in Milwaukee reported.

A chase ensued and officials say the fleeing driver reached speeds in excess of 100 mph and veered through traffic.

After exiting at Capitol Drive, the vehicle struck a curb and damaged a front tire and axle. It came to a stop on a median.

But the chase didn't end there. Lucero can be seen making a run for it just as backup arrives. She was captured by deputies and arrested.

While leading Lucero back to the squad car, emotions took over. Lucero can be heard screaming "Mama! Mama!" over and over again, video showed.

Deputies found a half bottle of vodka on the front passenger floor of the vehicle she crashed.

Two deputies received minor injuries in the chase.

The sheriff's office says this is Lucero's second OWI offense; she had a previous arrest in May of this year. Lucero was not allowed to be behind the wheel due to the previous conviction.

Lucero faces felony charges of vehicle operator flee/elude an officer, second degree recklessly endangering safety, and resisting/obstructing an officer-causing soft tissue injury. Lucero will also be charged with misdemeanor operating after revocation-OWI-related, citations for speeding.

She faces up to 20 years and nine months in prison if convicted as charged.

Lucero's bail has been set at over $6,000.
