Michigan woman abandons puppy in dumpster, leads officers on chase before crashing: police

A Michigan woman has been arrested after police say she caused a traffic crash and abandoned a puppy in a construction dumpster while attempting to flee authorities last week.

Farmington Hills Police Department issued a statement saying that Selena Maria Martin, 25, was arrested after driving on a suspended license, speeding, refusing to stop for police, and then crashing and fleeing her wrecked vehicle on Nov. 8.

Martin has been previously convicted of fleeing and eluding police on two other occasions, most recently on Aug. 5, 2021 and on Sept. 10, 2021, according to records obtained by Fox 2 Detroit. 

According to officers, once Martin and a 14-year-old passenger were taken into custody, Martin told police they abandoned a puppy in a construction dumpster because it was “slowing their escape.”
