Even though she was being chased by cops, a San Diego woman was still very much coasting in Half Moon Bay.

A 32-year-old San Diego woman is facing charges for an incident last week in which she allegedly took San Mateo County sheriff's deputies on a low-speed chase through the coastal town in a stolen RV.

Carly Janine Guteirrez also allegedly stuck her hand out of the window during the chase and made a peace sign.

The incident unfolded about 1:30 p.m. Nov. 13 when Guteirrez was reportedly rejected while attempting to fraudulently rent an RV from a San Mateo business.

She went outside, hopped into an RV worth more than $25,000 and drove off, prosecutors said.

Soon after, a sheriff’s deputy spotted the RV near Highway 92 and Main Street in Half Moon Bay. Guteirrez failed to stop, ignoring red lights and police sirens, prosecutor said.

“The chase was at low speed but the defendant did hold her hand out the window, making a peace sign,” San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

The RV finally stopped in Half Moon Bay and Guteirrez was arrested.
