PHOENIX — A naked woman was arrested Thursday after allegedly taking a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office truck for a joyride.

According to a sheriff’s office spokesman, Deputy Francisco Campillo was dispatched to a Shell gas station in Gila Bend, south of the Phoenix metro area, after someone called about a naked woman who claimed she had been sexually assaulted.

When Campillo went in the gas station to get something to cover the woman up, she took his truck and drove off eastbound along Interstate 8. She hit speeds as high as 100 mph.

Campillo tried to stop the truck and was injured in the process. He was treated at a hospital and released.

He was wearing a body camera.

The woman later crashed on Interstate 10 near Eloy after hitting another car. Deputies from both Maricopa and Pinal counties, along with troopers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, were involved in the pursuit and deployed stop sticks.

The suspect was put into an ambulance at the scene of the crash with what was believed to be minor injuries.

The woman is facing charges of unlawful flight from law enforcement, possession of a stolen MCSO vehicle, resisting arrest, theft of a means of transportation and aggravated assault.

The suspect may have been intoxicated at the time. If blood tests show she was, she could face five additional charges of endangerment.

MCSO said it would not identify the woman because she claimed she was sexually assaulted. Her claims are being investigated.

The woman has a criminal history was wanted on an outstanding warrant.
