Deputies said they were dispatched to a residence in the Turkey Creek area on July 21. Deputies located a vehicle in the woods and the driver of the vehicle had reportedly fled the scene.

She brushed a tree with her car and then ran it off an embankment. She was said from there to have fled into the woods, but was located shortly afterwards by deputies.

Ford and Fontenot were both allegedly under the influence of meth.
