Panties, bras and other shoplifted items were tossed from a car being chased by police at speeds up to 100 mph in northwestern Indiana.

The Northwest Indiana Times reported that the driver almost hit other vehicles before her car tires were shredded by spikes laid across a roadway by police.

Four bras, 14 pairs of undies, two candles and some air freshener refills — all valued at about $445 — are believed to have been stolen from a retail store in Portage, east of Gary, Indiana. 

The chase started when officers investigating shoplifting approached the woman about 6:30 p.m.

She was arrested when her car was stopped in Chesterton.

The woman faces fleeing and resisting law enforcement, theft and reckless driving charges.
