A Terre Haute grandmother made an appearance in court. Monday police arrested Mary Stadler.
Police claim she fled from them after they tried to pull her over.
It all stemmed from a custody dispute. In front of a judge, a Terre Haute Police officer said that they'd gotten a call of a possible child abduction from a non-custodial parent.
They then tracked down Stadler, her son Johnathan Berry and his 7 month old child. They asked Stadler to pull over, and she did not.
Police said she led them on chase ending in Clay County, Indiana at her father's home. In tears, in court, she said that she was trying to get help for her grandchild, who she felt was being misstreated.
In a News 10 exclusive, Stadler's son, Johnathan Berry who was in the car during the chase spoke with us about the situation.
He also claimed his baby boy was being mistreated and that he and Stadler were trying to get help. He described the incident.
"The cops was following us. we were not going to stop because the cops would not hear our side of the story. So we kept going and the cops was chasing us. We was going pretty fast, but not too fast," Berry said.
Stadler was released on her own recognizance. She's scheduled to appear in court again on Monday.
