A Tellico Plains area woman who led a Monroe County Sheriff's deputy on a chase the weekend after Thanksgiving, was arrested over the week­end. She was picked up by a Sheriff's Office cap­tain who knew she was wanted.

It was around 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 24 when Sgt. Ray Haynes said he attempted to stop a blue Toyota 4-Runner for a busted taillight and an outdated regis­tration. But the vehicle chose not to stop and took off down Fairview Road.

Haynes said he acti­vated his emergency equipment and chased the 4-Runner down Fairview Road, and onto Big Creek Road where the driver, later identi­fied as Rhonda Johnnie Duckett, Fairview Road, Tellico Plains, passed another car on a double yellow line on a hill.
