A Tucson woman is in jail after deputies say she had a wild night on Arizona highways. 

Pinal County Deputies arrested Inelda Provencia after they say she led them on a chase that started on I-8 and ended off I-10 and Sunland Gin road in Eloy. 

Deputies say Provencia took off her shirt and told deputies her name was "Jesus" when they tried to arrest her. 

The Sheriff's Office says at the time the chase reached 90 miles per hour. 

Charges are pending at this time.
