Weatherford Woman Is Formally Charged

The Weatherford woman who led DPS troopers on a high speed chase yesterday has been formally charged. 50-year-old Tonya Heiple is charged with Evading Arrest and a Traffic Violation. Officials say Heiple fled in excess of 100 miles per hour when troopers tried to pull her over. After laying down a spike strip, Heiple came to a stop and was taken into custody. Officials say Heiple told them she had an altercation with officers during another traffic stop. That's why she didn't stop. DPS says they have no evidence of that to be true.
