KILGORE/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - An Arlington teen is jailed after leading state troopers on a Christmas morning car chase in north Kilgore.
According to court records, 17-year-old Charleseona Hutchins was seen flagging down drivers along Interstate 20 at Texas Highway 42.
When DPS arrived, Hutchins jumped in a Nissan Maxima and sped away, first south, and then north.
DPS says Hutchins said she fled because she had taken 10 hydrocodone pills and damaged her grandmother's car. She is in the Gregg County Jail on $10,000 bond.
