A pregnant Ohio woman faces several felony charges after police say she stole a tow truck with her repossessed SUV was attached to and led police on a wild chase.

The tow truck driver in Massillon says he had hooked the 2004 Mercury Mountaineer to his truck and was putting wheel dollies on the all-wheel drive car when 21-year-old Sophia Davidson jumped into his cab and drove off.

She ground the tires off of the wheels and the rims were eating in the pavement as police found her and a seven chase started.

Police say that speeds reached 65 MPH and the chase only ended when she crashed into a vacant house.

Even then, she reportedly wouldn't get out of the truck and officers had to break a window and then wrestle her to the ground.

Davidson faces several felony charges including theft.  Her lawyer told the judge at a Monday court hearing that Davidson is eight months pregnant.  Her bail was set at $25,000.
