WATCH: Naked driver leads police on chase in New Mexico

Authorities in New Mexico released dash cam video of a naked woman leading police on a wild chase on an interstate over the weekend.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office released video of the driver on Monday. According to police, they received a criminal complaint the suspect was throwing things out of her car window Saturday morning. Officers tracked the suspect's car down and began chasing her. 

The driver, 51-year-old Barbara Arellano, didn't stop. Instead, she ran a red light and sped up to 100-miles-per-hour, nearly running another vehicle off the road. She tried to drive through a second red light, but was hit by an oncoming truck at the intersection.

The naked suspect jumped out of her vehicle yelling "Jehovah" and pointing at the officer. 

Police took Arellano into custody where she admitted she had whiskey and had taken drugs before getting behind the wheel. She also told deputies that she suffers from mental illness.

Arellano is facing several charges.
