CLACKAMAS COUNTY, Ore. — Tara Elizabeth Axmaker, high on meth, stabbed a man in the back in the wee hours of March 15, 2013, at a Mulino-area home.

When Clackamas County deputies arrived, they found the bloody victim but no Axmaker.

As deputies scoured the crime scene, Axmaker climbed behind the wheel of a responding deputy's patrol car and led the cops on a "Dukes of Hazzard" pursuit down back roads and around blind curves.
