An attorney who led police on a high-speed chase from Mississippi to Louisiana was convicted of driving while intoxicated. She weaved in and out of traffic at speeds over 80 mph and ran cars off the road.
She eventually stopped and failed to comply with police directives. She sentenced to a stayed six-month jail sentence with probation.
The attorney then violated the probation terms and there is presently a warrant out for her arrest.
The attorney's former tenant reported the conviction to Louisiana bar authorities (she did not) and also alleged that she was addicted to prescription drugs.
The Louisiana Supreme Court ordered a suspension of a year and a day. (Mike Frisch)
