    Police in Laconia, New Hampshire, have arrested a woman they say was speeding while drunk, fled officers and resisted arrest. 

    Sherry Giddis, 47, of Gilmanton, was clocked traveling at 90 mph in a 45 mph zone on Route 106 in Belmont around 11 p.m. Sunday. 

    Police say they attempted to stop her vehicle to no avail and she drove into Gilford and then Laconia. Giddis eventually drove to a McDonald's where police stopped her. 

    They say Giddis refused to open the door. Officers broke a window to reach her and Giddis allegedly fought with officers during the arrest.
