A routine traffic stop led to a brief chase and struggle with a suspect on Broadway in Yazoo City last Saturday.
Samantha Abels, 30, was charged with failure to yield, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and careless driving.
Terry Gann, chief investigator with the Yazoo County Sheriff’s Department, said a deputy attempted to stop Abels for reckless driving.
“Abels did pull over, but when the deputy got our and started walking to his car, he drove off,” Gann said. “Abels then pulled over at a convenience store and refused to open his door. The deputy was able to open the door and put Abels in custody after a brief struggle.”
Gann said marijuana was also discovered in the vehicle.
