A Roswell woman was arrested last week after police say she was racing on Ga. 400 and traveling at speeds over 110 mph.
Joy Ojehomon was arrested by Alpharetta police on Thursday, Aug. 24, and charged with speeding, racing and reckless driving.
Dash cam video obtained by Channel 2 Action News shows Ojehomon speeding side by side with a Ford Mustang. The Mustang eventually backed off, police said, but Ojehomon — who was driving a Nissan Altima — kept speeding. She eventually pulled over near a Waffle House in Roswell.
Ojehomon told police she didn’t know why she was being pulled over, and claimed she wasn’t racing the Mustang, but speeding so she could drop something off at her daughter’s school.
“It makes no difference,” Jason Muenzer of Alpharetta’s Department of Public Safety told Channel 2. “You got to deliver a paper, you’ve got to get there safely… More and more people today just feel like they’re invincible, and that’s just not the case.”
Muenzer said the driver of the Mustang wasn’t pursued or charged because there was only one officer in the pursuit.
“When there’s only one officer, it’s very hard to capture both individuals,” he said.
