A woman was arrested Wednesday after she lied about her fugitive boyfriend, according to San Antonio police.

Taylor Davidson, 26, was charged with hindering penal apprehension and evading arrest, jail records show.

On May 16, Department of Public Safety agents were conducting surveillance in hopes of arresting Jonathan Martin Valdez, who was wanted on charges of unlawful restraint and unlawful carrying of a handgun, according to an arrest affidavit.

The agents saw Davidson walk toward her pickup and stopped her to question her about Valdez, according to the affidavit.

When they asked Davidson if her boyfriend was in her apartment, she said no, according to the affidavit.

Then, Davidson asked the agents to see the warrants for Valdez. When the troopers went to their car to get the documentation, Davidson allegedly drove off in an effort to avoid them.

Agents pulled her over again and asked her if Valdez was in her apartment, and this time Davidson said yes, according to the affidavit.

Authorities released Davidson at the scene after she convinced her boyfriend to turn himself in, according to the affidavit. However, the agents told her they would forward the charges to the district attorney’s office to make a determination on whether to pursue charges.

The warrant for her arrest was signed on June 11, and Davidson was arrested on a $20,000 bond a few days later.
