Criminal Defense

A woman was recently charged with two felony and three misdemeanors counts after she was involved in a very low speed chase that occurred on the roads between Denton to Lewisville. The chase occurred when the Highway Patrol tried to stop the motorist for an unspecified traffic violations. The driver was eventually caught when law enforcement deployed tire deflation equipment. The woman was taken to the Denton County Jail where she was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evading arrest with a vehicle, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and driving with an invalid license. The woman’s bail totals $110,000.

Each year, many people in the state of Texas are charged with evading arrest. These offenses frequently result in various complications that can change a person’s life. As a result, this offense raises some unique considerations about evading arrest charges.

The Difference Between Evading and Resisting Arrest

Evading and resisting arrest might sound similar, but these are actually two separate offenses.

Classified as either a misdemeanor or felony, resisting arrest involves a person attempting to interfere with a law enforcement officer’s duties. Felony resisting arrest cases are often reserved for situations in which a person responds violently.

Law enforcement in Denton recently arrested two people after discovering 2.3 grams of methamphetamine inside their Kia, which was parked at a gas station. At first, law enforcement was alert to the car because the vehicle’s driver had an active arrest warrant for possession of a controlled substance. Law enforcement responded by detaining the vehicle’s driver. The motorist informed law enforcement that he had both a methamphetamine pipe and a syringe in his possession. Law enforcement then engaged in a search of the vehicle, during which time it was determined that there was a bag of methamphetamine in a cigarette box.

The passenger in the vehicle gave law enforcement an incorrect name, and it was later determined that the woman had an active warrant for theft. The motor vehicle driver was then arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance while the passenger was charged with failure to identify as a fugitive from justice. Both driver and passenger were placed in the Denton City Jail.

A burglary suspect is on the run from a Denton law enforcement officer who was in the process of serving the man two warrants for his arrest.When law enforcement arrived at the man’s residence to arrest him, the man began running through driveways and backyards throughout the surrounding neighborhood. The man was last spotted walking towards Interstate 35 East. The man has two outstanding warrants for theft under $2,5000 with two or more previous convictions and burglary of a habitation with intent to commit theft. The theft charge is related to an offense that occurred on July 11. The burglary charge is a second degree felony related to the individual unlocking and driving away in another person’s motor vehicle. Fortunately, the car was found hours later at a nearby location.

Many individuals are not aware that there are actually three ways to commit burglary of a habitation or building under applicable law in the state of Texas. The crime that a person is charged with frequently depends what type of offense a person intends on performing in the building or habitation.
