Newton has an extensive criminal past. In Des Moines, IA in 2019 Newton was charged with homicide by reckless driving, diving without insurance, driving with a suspended license, failure to obey a traffic control device and failure to render aid and provide information at a crash scene after crashing her mother’s vehicle. The sole occupant of the other vehicle died of his injures. Newton admitted to police she had been drinking prior to the crash. See that story here.

Newton and another subject were arrested at the same business during the same disturbance. The second individual may have been providing a getaway vehicle. The connection between Newton, a resident of Iowa, the other arrestee who resides in Ohio, and this Sulphur Springs business is unclear.

The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office is located at 298 Rosemont St., Sulphur Springs, TX 75482. Non-emergency calls can be made to (903) 438-4040.
