A Boone woman who tried to run police down with her car is back behind bars.

Amanda Bergeson was sentenced to 15 years in prison last January after pleading guilty to six counts of assault on a peace officer and theft.

In October 2011 she led police on a chase in a stolen SUV hitting three patrol cars and trying to run over another officer.

In July a warrant was issued for her arrest after she escaped from custody.

Authorities finally caught up to her, Tuesday.

Bergeson is in the Story County jail facing a new felony escape charge.
