Fort Dodge woman faces multiple charges

Webster County Telecommunications Center received a report of shots fired around 3:52 a.m Sunday morning. The information indicated several shots may have been fired in the Pleasant Valley area. The reporting party also gave a description of a tan sport utility vehicle that fled the area.

Officers responded and observed a vehicle matching the description traveling on the south side of Fort Dodge. Officers found that the owner of the vehicle had a warrant for their arrest and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle near 15th Avenue South and South 26th Street. The driver refused to pull over for the officers and fled. Stop sticks were deployed and after continuing to travel south on 22nd Street, the vehicle became disabled near South 15th Street and 12th Avenue Southwest.

The driver was identified as 38-year-old Tanisha Gully of Fort Dodge and was taken into custody.

Gully is charged with operating while intoxicated, eluding, numerous traffic offenses, and an outstanding warrant for possession of a controlled substance. Gully made her initial appearance in Webster County Magistrate Court Monday morning. Gully was released after posting bond.

The Fort Dodge Police Department is continuing their investigation of the initial shots fired report and if Gully’s vehicle had any connection to the incident. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Fort Dodge Police Department. The Webster County Sheriff’s Office assisted with this case.
