Woman arraigned on multiple charges


MARQUETTE — The Negaunee woman who was arrested Sunday after allegedly fleeing from police in a stolen vehicle from Marquette to Marquette Township has been arraigned in the 96th District Court upon multiple charges related to the incident.

Police had initially attempted to stop Donahue, who was driving a tan-colored Ford Taurus, after Donahue ran a stop sign at the corner of West Bluff Street and Rublein Street around 10:18 a.m. Sunday.

Donahue then continued north on North McClellan Avenue, turning left of West Ridge Street, and beginning to pick up speed.
