Lucille Elizabeth Meyer, 33, of rural Waubun will serve a five-year prison term at Shakopee after a stay of execution was revoked in Becker County District Court on a felony DWI charge, following a probation violation.

She was originally charged with two felony counts of DWI and one felony count of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle -- after a Nov. 23, 2016 chase in which the Ford Windstar minivan she was driving hit the front passenger side of squad car trying to stop her.

Meyer led officers on a chase on Highway 113 at varying speeds up to 70 mph, stopping suddenly just short of the Mahnomen County Line. The collision with the squad car occurred on a trail between Elbow Lake Store and Elbow Lake Village. Her blood alcohol level tested at .25%, more than three times the legal limit, and she had three prior DWI convictions, two in 2014 and one in 2016.

On Sept. 6, District Judge Leonard Weiler revoked a stay of execution and ordered her sentence carried out: She must serve a 60-month prison term and pay a $50 fine and $625 in court fees. The other two charges were dismissed in a plea agreement.
