Clarksville Police were led on a foot chase by a woman trying to ride a battery-operated Walmart cart home.

Jamie Taylor, 41, is charged on outstanding warrants of two counts of driving on a revoked license, two counts of simple possession, no insurance and child restraint.

Police said they responded to a 911 call for a welfare check about a woman driving a Walmart cart home at 4 a.m. on Tuesday. The woman was apparently traveling in the middle of the road on 101st Airborne Division Parkway.

Police said when they found the woman, she was traveling along Victory Road, about 1.5 miles from the Ft. Campbell Blvd Walmart. An officer pulled behind the woman and put emergency lights on for safety purposes.

Police said the woman continued traveling, "seemingly oblivious to the officer's presence." The officer ended up catching up with the woman after chasing her on foot.

Taylor told the officer she went to Walmart to get snacks, and when she came out, her car wouldn't start. She told police she took the battery-powered cart so she could get to her house to get help to start her car.

That's when police learned Taylor was wanted on outstanding warrants. She was booked on the outstanding charges and is being held in Montgomery County Jail with a bond of $15,000.

A pickup truck was used to return the cart to the store.
