WASILLA — Jamie Lynne Kohlmeier is in custody after racking up more than a dozen charges following a high-speed chase on June 28.
Kohlmeier was taken to Mat-Su Pre Trial with 15 charges following the chase just after 5:00 a.m. June 28. Alaska State Troopers received a report that Kohlmeieir had rammed a security company vehicle and subsequently attempted to run over the security guard at the Country Store on Bogard Road in Wasilla. Both AST and the Wasilla Police Department gave chase to Kohlmeier’s green Mitsubishi SUV in an attempt to stop Kohlmeier. Kohlmeier then flipped a u-turn and attempted to ram a WPD vehicle head on and continued to flee from officers in pursuit with both lights and sirens activated. Kohlmeier crossed into the south bound lane of Seward Meridian Parkway and onto the Parks Highway where Kohlmeier reached speeds of 100 miles per hour. Kohlmeier did rear end one WPD vehicle and was ultimately stopped in a private drive on Northshore Drive in Wasilla. The AST and WPD officers were able to pin Kohlmeier’s Mitsubishi using Pursuit Intervention Techniques and bumpers. Upon contact, Kohlmeier was uncooperative and was eventually tazed and taken to MSPT on 15 different charges. Kohlmeier is charged with failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer in the first degree, criminal mischief in the fourth degree, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, two counts of criminal mischief in the third degree, two counts of action of an operator after a collision, two counts of violating conditions of release, and four counts of assault in the third degree, three of which are assault on a law enforcement officer charges.
Kohlmeier had been scheduled to appear in court for previous charges before the chase. Kohlmeier has two contempt of court charges out of Kodiak in 2010, two misdemeanor charges for failure to restrain and register an animal in August of 2018, a vehicle theft in the first degree charge from March 22 of this year in Anchorage and a false information charge on April 23.
