BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. -- A Myrtle Beach woman called 911 while she was being pursued by sheriff's deputies in North Carolina late Monday and said she would pull over -- if they paid her $300,000.

"I will pull over for 300 grand; that is my offer," Jeniffer Herring told the 911 operator in Brunswick County. "I'm asking you to accept it."

She claimed to have a contract with law enforcement, charging $300,000 per incident and said she was still waiting on payment from a prior issue.

When the 911 operator urged her to pull over, she replied, "No, I'm not pulling over because pulling over is voluntary. I'm not doing nothing wrong."

"I'm not running from this cop," Herring said. "I'm doing 40 miles per hour with this cop behind me with his siren on, acting like a moron. Can you please let him know to turn it off because I'm not running?"

She insisted she wasn't speeding, though deputies clocked her at about 70 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone, according to Mose Highsmith with the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office.

Herring repeatedly accused officers of creating a "false sense of emergency."

"What is the use of all these public funds going toward chasing me on the roads right now like a bunch of idiots when I am not a threat to society in any way, shape or form? Obviously, or I wouldn't be calling you sir," she said. 

"If you call off your dogs we can pretend this never even happened," she told the operator.

Six units joined in the nearly 15 minute pursuit before Herring finally stopped.

She was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated, felony fleeing to elude arrest, driving while license revoked, careless and reckless driving, and driving left of center. She also had an outstanding arrest warrant on a failure to appear on a pending DWI case.
