— A Durham Police Department employee was arrested Tuesday after she refused to stop when an officer tried to pull her over, according to a police spokesperson.

LaTosha Miles, the department's personnel manager, was initially stopped by an officer for speeding on Interstate 85 at about 7:40 a.m. Tuesday.

Officers followed her vehicle briefly, with sirens and lights on, and then put out a description of the vehicle when she did not stop. The vehicle was stopped a short time later near Sandy Ridge Elementary School on Old Oxford Highway, officers said.

Miles was charged with speeding, resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer and misdemeanor fleeing/eluding arrest.

She is currently on administrative leave while the incident is under investigation.

Miles joined the Durham Police Department in March 2014.

    Oh Miss Miles ,Karma has caught up with you. The hateful ways you would jump up in Teachers face and Group Leaders face at your daughters school. Oh honey how I am loving karma right now, but your pretty looks will get you out of this mess. Just think about how you ran off good hearted Group Leaders in Community Ed,and how you would make teachers cry in the teacher lounge. God help your children and your nephews.
