A Fall Branch woman is behind bars after police say she fled through several yards following an aggravated burglary.

According to Washington County, Tennessee Sheriff Ed Graybeal, deputies responded to an aggravated burglary on Ridgemont Circle and made contact with 37-year-old Sonya Corder. Deputies ordered her out of her car at gunpoint. Police said Corder then fled through several yards in her vehicle until she was able to get onto the roadway.

Sheriff Graybeal said the pursuit continued through the Harmony community. Police added that Corder went through fields, swerved at officers, and eventually crashed her vehicle and was taken into custody.

Corder was charged with aggravated burglary, theft, aggravated reckless endangerment, driving on a suspended license, vandalism, and felony evading arrest.

Corder's bond was set at $128,000. She is due in court Wednesday and more charges are pending.
