A woman under investigation for child abuse continued to make mistakes when she led LaFollette Police on a chase last Wednesday.

Officer Steve Wallen was investigating a child abuse case where Samantha A. Huckaby, 23, of 510 East Central Avenue, Apartment 112, was found to be the “primary aggressor,” LPD reports said.

When he attempted to make contact with Huckaby at her mother’s residence, Wallen and Officer Jason Marlow were told she was not there.

A short time later Wallen located Huckaby hiding behind a shed in backyard of the East Central Avenue home, records indicate.

Huckaby was charged with aggravated child abuse and evading arrest. She is scheduled to appear in court on June 19.
