MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -

A Memphis, Tenn. woman whose van was chased and shot at by New Mexico State Police during a chaotic October traffic stop near Taos is wanted in Tennessee.

A Bartlett, Tenn., judge issued a failure to appear warrant for Oriana Farrell this week in connection with a September speeding ticket.

Farrell has remained in New Mexico where she is under a court to order to stay pending the resolution of charges from the separate Oct. 28 case near Taos.

A since-fired New Mexico State Police officer shot at her van filled with children after she twice sped off after being stopped by another officer for speeding.

Farrell's attorney in Taos, Alan Maestas, told the Albuquerque Journal a way to resolve the two-state situation might be to just pay the Tenn. speeding ticket.
