(Scroll down for video) A woman who was detained for speeding, told police that God told her to drive 100 miles per hour, according to police reports.

The Florida woman who blew her horn and drove 100 mph in a 30 mph zone on U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce at 1:00 a.m. Tuesday, told officials that God told her to.

Despite doing what God allegedly told her to do, Melissa Miller, 41, of Port St. Lucie, was arrested on charges of reckless driving and speeding.

She was taken to jail in St. Lucie County and placed under a bond of $375. Besides reckless driving, the resident of the 400 block of Northwest Marsala Terrace, is charged with violation of probation for leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

After being arrested, she told an officer that she was speeding "because I was letting the Spirit of the Lord guide me," according to the police report. She attributed her long horn blowing as "the Lord tells me to do it."

The incident began in the 600 block of U.S. 1 when an officer saw a silver Toyota south on U.S. 1, while sounding the horn for 10 seconds and an arm out the window. When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the speed was increased, swerved across two lanes to the south, almost hitting a curb, and two vehicles that were heading north, according to the report.

The car finally turned west on Virginia Avenue, and stopped. A tow company towed her vehicle immediately.
She apologized, but when police asked her how fast she was going, she said: "Yes, 100 mph,” police said.
