An Atascadero resident was arrested Tuesday evening after leading officers on a vehicle pursuit through the city, according to police.
Twenty-five-year-old Tatum Michael Stewart was arrested on suspicion of felony evading a peace officer and for having fraudulent registration tabs on her vehicle, according to a news release from Atascadero police.
She remained in San Luis Obispo County Jail on Wednesday morning without the possibility of posting bail.
The incident started at 7:18 p.m., when deputy probation officers with the county’s probation department requested police assist with a traffic stop on a white BMW. Stewart reportedly drove away in her vehicle after probation officers were trying to contact her for violating the terms of her probation, the news release stated.

Atascadero police officers located the vehicle and tried to stop it; instead, Stewart led officers on a vehicle pursuit through the city, reaching speeds of about 65 miles per hour.
Stewart stopped the car in front of a residence on Campbell Lane and was taken into custody without incident.
Atascadero police said this was the second pursuit involving Stewart and Atascadero officers; the first happened in September 2010 and ended in Los Osos.
