Arrest -- Dec. 14. A Whitesboro police officer was serving a Hunt County arrest warrant on a woman who didn't want to go peacefully. At the Whitesboro Jail, she threatened to kill herself, then turned her aggression against the officer, his family, and a dispatcher, threatening them all with bodily harm.

Inside the jail cell, which is watched on monitors, she was seen taking off her bra and trying to hang herself. Officers took her to a hospital for evaluation. She was determined to be fit for confinement, and so the officers took her to Grayson County Jail where its medical staff and corrections officers could keep a close watch on the suspect.

Durant Police

Felony arrest and escape -- Dec. 17, E. State Highway 70, Police stopped a disabled vehicle in a closed business' parking lot. A man stood at the rear of the vehicle and a juvenile female sat in the driver seat. As McEachern approached the man, he saw the suspect walk over and hand the juvenile something. That later turned out to be an orange tin containing four Xanax and one Darvocet, both controlled substances.

The suspect appeared nervous, and continually looked around as though he was trying to find somewhere to run. Police determined the suspect had an outstanding felony warrant and placed him under arrest.

He placed the suspect in the front seat of the patrol car and seat-belted him in, then went to speak with the juvenile.

He suddenly saw the suspect running out of the parking lot, still wearing his handcuffs, the report continues. Police chased him for several blocks until he lost sight of the suspect.

About 30 minutes later, with other officers also searching, they found the suspect lying underneath a pickup and again placed him under arrest.
