— State troopers arrested Amonda Latease Settles, 31, Friday morning after a chase that began on  U.S. Highway 401 in Franklin County and ended at a Raleigh apartment complex.

The pursuit began after Settles drove away from a license checkpoint and ended just after 11 a.m. at the Cedar Springs Apartments, 5500 Reunion Point Drive, according to Capt. Everett Clendenin. Troopers deployed stop sticks, forcing Settles to halt, Clendenin said.

Troopers charged Settles with attempting to elude arrest, driving with a revoked license and reckless driving.
