The woman, 51, from Saline, had fled and was on a pontoon boat which did not belong to her and was in the lake. Officers called her but she got into the water and hid under the boat, refusing to come to shore. Officers climbed a fence trying to reach the woman but were unable to find her on or under the pontoon.
A short time later she climbed back onto the pontoon and was arrested. She told officers she hid because she had an arrest warrant from Ann Arbor.
