An adult female, identified as Rayna Michelle Polk, 35, was later questioned at the scene and she tried to flee, according to deputies. She reportedly dropped her purse, which had a semi-automatic pistol. She got into a car she had parked nearby and took off.
Police chased Polk down several residential streets before she got onto the Eastex Freeway. She took the Tidwell exit, then pulled over into a parking lot of a business in the 3600 block of Tidwell Rd.
While she was stopped, Polk was taken into custody by Precinct 6 deputies without incident. Deputies say the weapon found had been reported stolen.
Polk has been charged with felony evading arrest and for possession of a stolen weapon.
