A former Navasota woman, who said she “didn’t have time for jail,” when being served an arrest warrant is in the Brazos County jail for the 7th time in 15 years.
The Bryan Police arrest report states they attempted serving a Criminal Trespass warrant on Meg Lane early Sunday morning. A traffic stop an hour before indicated the woman they were looking for, 34 year old Latrice Darnell Ruckett of Bryan, formerly Navasota, was at the address.
During the traffic stop prior, which was being driven by another man, the officer stated that the owner of the vehicle, which was Ruckett, needed to come pick up her car from the stop. When speaking with the officer, Ruckett said she knew she had a warrant, was not going to come, and “did not have time to deal with jail right now.”
The aunt of two children in the car at the traffic stop arrived, and gave officers consent to enter the house on Meg Lane to find Ruckett.
Inside a closet in the bathroom, the officer found Ruckett, hiding behind a clothes hamper. Ruckett began resisting in the room, before she was handcuffed. When placed in the patrol car, Ruckett then banged her head multiple times on the window.
Eventually, she was taken to the Brazos County jail on the outstanding warrant, and charges of evading or Resisting Arrest.
Ruckett was released after posting a $2,500 bond.
