A woman featured in our Monday’s Most Wanted segment has been captured.

Jessica Ball was wanted by the Washington County Tennessee Sheriff’s Office after a deputy said he slammed into his cruiser and refused to get out of her car.

The Sheriff’s Office had received a call about a reckless driver in the Sulphur Springs area. When the deputy responded, he found Jessica Ball in her car with her son in a parking lot.

The deputy ran her license and found she had a warrant out for her arrest in Johnson City. When he asked Ball to step out of the car, she refused. Ball floored it, dragging the deputy 15 feet before hitting his cruiser.

Now, thanks to a tip from a woman in Asheville, North Carolina, Buchanan County deputies arrested Ball.

She is now being held at the Washington County detention center.
