Connie Lynn Allen allegedly said she was the Virgin Mary when arrested for driving at 120mph Saturday
A woman who led cops on a 120mph high speed chase claimed she was the Virgin May when pulled over by cops.
Connie Lynn Allen, 52, also claimed God had given her the authority to drive at huge speed – and that she was en route to pick up the baby Jesus at the time.
She was reportedly caught speeding on the I-65 near Goodlettsville, Tn, on Saturday afternoon by a cop in an unmarked car.
The trooper began pursuing Allen with his lights and siren on, but Allen kept the pedal to the metal and hit speeds of up to 120mph,it is claimed.
Another police car then joined in the chase, with Allen finally pulling over after 15 miles of hair-raising driving, a police citation said.
