A woman arrested almost two weeks ago after a pursuit in Mount Juliet will be in court on DeKalb County charges against her March 13.

41 year old Candida Faye Davidson of Jefferson Road, Smithville is charged with evading arrest and failure to appear in General Sessions Court. She is under a $250 cash bond for the failure to appear and a $1,500 bond for evading.

According to Sheriff Patrick Ray, a bench warrant for failure to appear was recently issued in General Sessions Court against Davidson after she failed to appear for violation of probation.

On Friday, March 7 a criminal detective went to Brookview Apartments to execute an arrest warrant on Davidson for failure to appear. When she saw the officer Davidson ran into an apartment. Once inside, Davidson refused to come to the door even after the detective knocked and identified himself as a law enforcement officer. The detective then entered the apartment but Davidson ran out the back door and jumped off the porch of the second floor. Davidson was injured in the fall and airlifted by helicopter ambulance to a Nashville hospital. She was apparently not seriously hurt and was later released from the hospital.

Mount Juliet Police arrested both Davidson and 51 year old Edward Judkins on Thursday, February 27 after a short pursuit there. In addition to facing the local charges, Davidson was charged by Mount Juliet Police with possession of a schedule VI drug after she allegedly tried to conceal a baggy of marijuana on her person which was discovered by medical personnel after the pursuit.

Judkins was charged by Mount Juliet Police with evading arrest and reckless endangerment. Both Judkins and Davidson are to appear on those charges May 13 in Wilson County.
