A 100 MPH high speed chase in Portage, IN got racy as women's underwear went everywhere.

We all know that bras and panties can be shockingly expensive.  Holly Sansone thought she found a solution to that problem in Northern Indiana by allegedly stealing 4 bras, 14 panties, two candles and air fresheners before leading police on a crazy chase according to the Northwest Indiana Times,

 A trail of panties, bras and other allegedly shoplifted items flew from the car window of a Liberty Township woman as she led police on a high-speed chase, nearly colliding head-on with other vehicles Wednesday night, Portage officers reported.

When approached by police for suspected shoplifting from the nearby Kohl's store at 6495 U.S. 6 in Portage, the woman, identified as 34-year-old Holly Sansone, shrugged with both hands in the air and said, "I've gotta go," before leading officers on the chase.

You would think with these high speeds this chase happened on an interstate.  You would be wrong.  Sansone reached speeds of nearly 100 MPH in a 45 MPH zone.  In many states, law enforcement will not engage in high speed chases in these types of areas due to safety risks.  It's actually shocking that the officers participated in the chase over shoplifting when they had the info they needed to find her later.

Portage City Plice Chief Troy Williams defended the officer's actions according to NWItimes.com,

Williams said officers involved in chases are constantly evaluating the situation as it is occurring. There was no rainy or icy conditions, he said, and it was not a time of the day when students or pedestrians would likely be out.

"I'm comfortable with the way they handled it," he said.

On a side note, if you looking for free bras and panties you might want to check the ditch next to U.S. 6 and Indiana 49 in Portage, Indiana.
