Felony drug and weapon charges were filed Tuesday against a Norman woman and her male passenger after the pair led police on a chase from Norman to South Oklahoma City in a stolen vehicle early Tuesday morning.

Jessica Henderson, 30, of Norman, and Jimmy Boggs, 38, of Yukon, were booked into the Cleveland County Detention Center. Charges of unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous drug, and possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony, were filed against both defendants. Henderson also was charged with misdemeanor complaints of attempting to elude a police officer; obstructing a police officer; and unlawful possession of paraphernalia.

In addition, Henderson was wanted on three felony warrants from Cleveland County, for failure to appear in court, and a misdemeanor warrant from Norman Municipal Court; and Boggs was wanted on two felony warrants from Cleveland County for possession of a controlled drug and failure to appear, records show.

According to a court documents, Master Police Officer John Terry spotted the vehicle, a black 1999 Chevrolet Blazer, parked in front of Robin Hill Elementary School on Franklin Road in northeast Norman, around 12:40 a.m.

Terry said the pair turned on the Blazer’s hazard lights as he pulled up, and when he asked what was wrong, told him the battery was dead. Pointing out that their hazard lights wouldn’t work if their battery was dead, the pair “seemed to become nervous,” Terry said.

Both suspects presented him with fraudulent IDs, and offered dates of birth that didn’t match the dates on the cards, Terry said. After confronting the pair about lying, both suspects admitted having warrants out for their arrests, he said.

Terry said he asked for the keys to the vehicle, and Henderson “handed me a set of keys, but shortly thereafter started the vehicle and began to flee.”

Terry reportedly pursued the Blazer west on Franklin Road and north on I-35, reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour, he said. Henderson lost control of the Blazer when a rear tire blew out, ran through a fence and went “spinning wildly through a trailer park,” Terry said.

Henderson regained control and resumed the attempted escape before coming to a stop on the 89th Street off ramp in Moore, Terry reported.

Police searched the vehicle and found stolen checks and checkbook; a small black canvas back containing a hypodermic needle and glassine envelopes with white residue that tested positive for methamphetamine, Terry said. Another needle and a glass pipe was found inside a black purse, he said. The Blazer was reported stolen in Oklahoma City, police said.

Police said the tag on the Blazer belonged to a different vehicle, and officers found two more tags inside the vehicle.

A Moore police officer assisting in the chase reported finding a .22 caliber handgun along the course of the pursuit. Boggs told Terry the handgun belonged to Henderson, who told him to throw it from the car as they were being chased, Terry said.
