A 45-year-old Calistoga woman led police on a pursuit Friday night after an officer attempted to pull her over regarding a broken tail light, Calistoga police said.

Around 9:30 p.m., an officer tried to stop Tina Penoli Hegwood in the area of Foothill Boulevard near Highland Court, police said. She allegedly fled, driving 20 miles above the speed limit.

She stopped in the 3200 block of Lake County Highway, police said. Hegwood was arrested on suspicion of evading a peace officer and on suspicion of drug possession.

Following her arrest, the vehicle she was driving was searched and a small amount of marijuana was located, along with oxycodone, police allege. She was booked into the Napa jail.
