PONCE DE LEON – A Bonifay woman is facing additional charges following her arrest for active Holmes County warrants.


25-year-old Sonya K. Carnley was the passenger of a vehicle stopped by Holmes County deputies at the intersection of Highway 81 South and Highway 181 the morning of Tuesday, December 10.


During the course of the stop, a deputy recognized Carnley as being wanted for violation of probation related to a prior felony drug arrest.


Carnley ignored the deputy’s request to roll down her window, yelling instead for the driver to drive away.


Deputies were able to place Carnley in restraints and take her into custody for the outstanding warrants, but while the deputy was at a stop sign during her transport, she managed to kick out the back glass of the patrol vehicle while still in hand restraints and flee on foot behind Ponce de Leon Town Hall.


The deputy was able to quickly apprehend Carnley, who was transported in another patrol unit to the Holmes County Jail without further incident.


Carnley is additionally charged with escape, resisting a law enforcement office without violence, and criminal mischief.
