MONROE, Wis. - A Monroe woman was taken into custody by an Illinois sheriff's department after leading Green County officials on a pursuit in the city of Monroe.

Green County deputies attempted to stop Vicky Lynn Hayden-West, 35, in Monroe after she failed to stop for a stop sign at the intersection of 17th Street and 4th Avenue West Friday around 11:10 a.m., according to a release.

Hayden-West fled southbound and committed numerous other traffic violations, officials said. Deputies terminated the pursuit in the area of Bethel Road and Highway B after they obtained a license plate number of the vehicle and were able to identify the driver.
