Police say a Winston-Salem woman led them on a car chase through the western part of the city following a traffic stop for a burned out headlight. During the chase, the woman crashed into an iron gate at Livingstone College.

Salisbury Police charged Faye Collins Evans, 50, of the 3900 block of Logan Lane, with misdemeanor vandalism, felony possession of cocaine and an outstanding warrant for felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

The incident occurred Wednesday around 8 p.m. when an officer stopped a silver Kia Sorrento near Brenner and Overman avenues that had no headlights turned on, a report said. The officer asked the driver, later identified as Evans, to see her license and registration.

She told the officer she’d lost her license, but had her registration. The officer checked her information and determined she had an outstanding warrant for her arrest from Forsyth County for assault. When the officer informed Evans of the warrant, she hesitated briefly and put the car in gear.

Evans traveled through Lloyd Street, Old West Innes Street and Institute Street, where she crashed into the metal fence on the Livingstone College campus. She continued through to Wilson Road and eventually stopped her car in front of a home in the 700 block of South Ellis.

Police said Evans tried to run, but was shocked with a Taser. Once she was arrested, officers found a 0.1 gram of cocaine, two smoking pipes and a Brillo pad on her.

She was issued a $10,000 secured bond and remains in the Rowan County Detention Center. Evans was convicted of worthless check, misdemeanor larceny, forgery, common law robbery and prostitution.
