SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - About 1:30 p.m. Thursday, the Smith County Sheriff's Office received a call about a woman who had been assaulted by her boyfriend near the 13000 block of County Road 285 in the eastern part of Smith County near Chapel Hill. 

Upon arrival of Smith County Sheriff's Office units, the suspect, identified as Jason Brian Woods, fled into a wooded area behind the residence.  

Woods had evaded Smith County Sheriff's deputies on several occasions in the past dating back almost a year. An arrest warrant charging Woods with evading arrest was outstanding from one of the previous incidents. 

Numerous Smith County Sheriff's deputies and officers of the Whitehouse Police Department responded to the area, as well as Whitehouse Police Department's tracking Canine Vox.  As the canine team was tracking Woods near the residence, Woods was observed reentering the residence. 

Woods was taken into custody after Smith County Sheriff's deputies and Whitehouse Police officers made forced entry into the residence.  Woods was taken into custody after a brief attempt to resist and is currently being booked into the Smith County Jail. 

Bond on the previous charge of evading had been set at $75,000.  Additional evading charges will be pursued as well.  The investigation is still ongoing and more information will be passed on as it is received.
