A 21-year-old woman who allegedly led police on a high speed pursuit while drink driving on a suspended licence will face court this morning.
Police tried to pull the woman over for a roadside breath test on Streeton Drive Weston about 4.20am.
But police say she failed to stop, instead leading them on a pursuit through Phillip and Mawson.
The white Mitsubishi Lancer allegedly reached speeds of up to 140km/h in a pursuit that lasted four and a half minutes.
Eventually the woman pulled over on Wilkins Street in Mawson.
Police say she refused to undergo a roadside screening test, but later recorded a blood alcohol content of 0.122 at Woden Police Station.
The woman, who lives in Phillip, will face charges of drink driving, driving with licence suspended, furious/reckless driving and failing to stop.
She is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.
