HILLSVILLE — After word that a probation violation would result in an appearance before the magistrate, a 24-year-old Woodlawn woman tried to flee the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office on Friday.

At the Carroll probation office, Sgt. Randy Wilson got an arrest warrant for Brittany Dawn Elledge on a probation violation, according to information from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.
While still in the sheriff’s office lobby, Elledge “bolted” out the door, according to deputies. A short foot pursuit to the front of the Carroll County Government Center took place, during which she was taken back into custody within minutes.
Wilson charged Elledge with escape as a result.
