AUSTIN, Tex. - A woman is in jail after officials say she stole a sheriff's deputy's car and drove it at speeds exceeding 130 mph before crashing it into a fence in East Austin.

Candice Marie Asdahl, 23, is charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, evading arrest, escape from custody—all felonies—and a misdemeanor charge of failing to stop and give information after an accident.

Other charges might be made, officials said.
