A Bryan woman was arrested Tuesday after leading authorities on a high-speed chase through two counties, authorities said.

Rhonda Thurman, 30, was charged with auto theft, driving while intoxicated and evading arrest.

The road race began around 9 a.m. after Thurman allegedly stole gas from a convenient store on Highway 6, north of Calvert.

Robertson County Sheriff's Deputies and Calvert police pursued the Ford Explorer at speeds topping 100 miles-per-hour through Hearne, where Hearne police joined the pursuit.

Brazos County Constables and Bryan police jumped in at the Bryan city limits as the Explorer made its way through residential streets, eventually wrecking at Peale and Hall Street.

Thurman was captured following a brief foot chase.

Police said during the pursuit, Thurman struck a Calvert police patrol car, causing a dent and broken head light.
She could face an additional charge of assault on a police officer with a vehicle, police said.

In June, Thurman was arrested in Bryan after leading police on a chase, according to police reports.
