What started out as a disturbance in Vasper, ended in an arrest in Jacksboro.


Deputy Nathaniel Bostic was alerted on Feb. 7 to be on the lookout for a White Chevrolet Equinox. Bostic spotted the vehicle on Stone Mill Road, when he turned around to follow the vehicle, the driver accelerated.  When he attempted to catch the vehicle, he reached speeds over 60-mph in a 30-mph zone. The driver continued onto McDeerman Road at a high rate of speed and almost hit another vehicle. The vehicle eventually turned onto Clear Lake Drive and the driver, Cleda Renee McGhee, pulled into her drive way, according to the report. At this point, McGhee got out of the vehicle and fled on foot around the residence. When Bostic attempted to make contact with McGhee, he lost sight of her around the back of the home.

Later, Bostic was told by a resident on Poplar Lane that a female matching McGhee’s description was sitting at the end of the road. When Bostic located her, she allegedly said that she ran because she knew she had an outstanding warrant. A check of her license revealed that it was revoked and that she was an habitual motor vehicle offender.

McGhee, 37, 147 Clearlake Drive, Jacksboro is charged with driving while revoked, felony evading arrest, reckless endangerment and attachment child support.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/15/2019-6AM)
