Seneca Falls (WSYR-TV) – A Seneca Falls woman was taken into custody and charged with drunk driving after she allegedly escaped from a patrol car and led police on a brief foot chase.
According to Seneca Falls Police, 23-year-old Natasha Laurenza of Stantion Meadows, Seneca Falls, was driving drunk when they pulled her over shortly before 2 a.m.
