A Rochester woman was arrested this morning a little after midnight (because nothing good happens after midnight) after she allegedly tried to pull a dine and dash.
Gates Police say Marqueeta Nixon was at the Applebees in Gates when she left without paying. In the process of escaping the store she allegedly pushed and punched an employee.
Marqueeta got into a car with an unknown male and fled. Gates Police Officers saw the vehicle on Spencerport Road and tried to stop it but the vehicle sped off. Due to the high speed, Gates PD says they stopped pursuing, but later found the vehicle after it had crashed into a utility pole at the intersection of Lyell and Elmgrove Roads.
Marqueeta was taken into custody in a field near the accident site with help from Ogden PD and the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Police were not able to track down the male suspect.
Marqueeta is now facing charges of 3rd degree assault and theft of services.
