MOORHEAD-A Moorhead woman who was stopped earlier this year while driving 118 mph with children in her vehicle was sentenced in Clay County District Court on Monday to 36 days in jail.

During the incident, a Minnesota State Patrol trooper attempted to stop Anvarinia's vehicle on Interstate 94 near Barnesville for going 94 mph in a 70 mph zone.

A chase followed and speeds reached 118 mph before the fleeing car was stopped by tire-deflating gear, according to court documents.
