Rains County Woman Tries to Evade Arrest, Placed on Watch by Jail Staff

A 40-year old Rains County woman is in Hopkins County Jail charged with Evading Arrest/Detention with a Motor Vehicle (a State Jail Felony) after a Hopkins County Deputy initiated a traffic stop on State Highway 19, just north of CR 1170 Tuesday.

The deputy attempted to stop the motorist after noting no license plate lights. The woman moved to the southbound shoulder of the state highway and continued driving. The deputy pursued her into Rains County and the vehicle turned eastbound on Rains County Road 3325. She drove to a trailer park and stopped there. The officer attempted a felony takedown but the driver locked the car doors and refused to exit. He noted no weapons visible in the auto and waited on additional patrol units for assistance. The driver was crying, shaking, and yelling. She eventually exited the vehicle and Rain EMS evaluated her at the scene.

She was taken into custody and transferred to Hopkins County Jail where  she refused to answer any questions. Due to her actions, she was placed on watch by jail staff. Her vehicle was inventoried and nothing incriminating was found. She is being held on a $5,000 bond.
