According to Marietta Police, Evans attempted to steal a cab from a Cobb County Transit station on South Marietta Parkway before she walked across the street and stole a pickup truck from a man at a nearby gas station. 

When the owner of the pickup truck noticed the woman getting in the truck, he tried to stop her and was dragged a short distance before he let go. He was treated for minor injuries.

Police located the truck using the GPS system installed on it. Temple Police Sgt. James Hollowood said deputies tried to pull her over, which is when she began the chase.

Evans' children were not injured in the crash. They were taken to the Roswell Police Department and released to their father.

Evans is being held in the Carroll County Jail on more than 20 charges, including theft, reckless conduct, aggravated assault, cruelty to children, fleeing a police officer, speeding and reckless driving.
