Motorcyclist Arrested After Chase Through O'Fallon Reached 95 mph

Woman weaved in and out of traffic on I-70 Saturday, reaching dangerously high speeds even on city streets, Highway Patrol said.

Patrolmen arrested a woman after she led them on a motorcycle chase Saturday on Interstate 70 and down side streets, reaching speeds of 95 mph and more.

Amanda Leigh Schlueter, 20, of the first block of Rose Drive in St. Peters, is being charged with resisting arrest.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper said in a report that when he tried to pull Schlueter over for careless driving and speeding on her motorcycle on I-70 west of Bryan Road in , she refused to pull over.

Instead, she traveled at speeds of up to 90 to 95 mph, weaved in and out of traffic, changed lanes “and performed dangerous stunts at a high rate of speed,” according to the trooper’s report. The chase even reached 95 mph on city streets with speed limits of 25 mph, according to the report.

Bond for Schlueter was set at $15,000. She posted 10 percent of the amount and was released from St. Charles County Jail.

The residents of O'Fallon are fortunate that the Missouri Highway Patrol was able to stop this out of control motorcyclist before her reckless 95 mph driving or more on our city streets ended in a tragic death or deaths. Any comment praising her in any way other than a danger to our residents is totally unacceptable.

If she really knew how to ride a motorcycle, she wouldn't have gotten caught by MOHP.

Very disappointing comments to the fact that this young lady could have easily killed herself plus an unsuspecting resident/residents on our streets as she flew by at more than 95 mph. To state, "she's pretty"..."she sure can ride"....she's hot"....etc., is way off the mark, to say the least. I am sure that she is a young woman who now realized she made a mistake, and hopefully she will straighten out her riding in our community. Yes, blogs are to stir people up, and it worked. To not understand the serious nature of this offense is very troubling to me.

You're right Jim. She's done a bad thing. And needs to be punished. I'm thinking a spanking is in order. So Amanda, when you are ready to face the music, email me.

Rich, I have always appreciated and admired school teachers on all levels. As a former teacher, with parents and grandparents who taught school and children who teach school now, I know the level of professionalism that they maintain as a teacher. You could learn from them as it pertains to your flippant and unprofessional comments on this issue. Enough said by me.
