ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Pollok woman accused of stealing a Lufkin Police Department patrol unit in September and leading police on a chase caught on dashcam pleaded not guilty to all charges during her arraignment on Thursday.

Toscha Sponsler, 33, led officers on a 100 mph chase which ended in Zavalla.

The chase began in the parking lot of Ulta, where police were investigating a report of shoplifting. The chase stopped after a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper intervened and made her lose control of the vehicle.

She's facing charges of evading arrest, aggravated assault of a public servant, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
