Woman without pants tried to leave crash scene in battery-powered toy truck

A Jonesboro, Arkansas woman was arrested on DWI charges after police say she slammed into a mobile home then tried to leave the scene of the accident in a child's battery-operated truck.

Jamie Jeanette Craft, 29, is also charged with public intoxication, refusal to submit, disorderly conduct, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage and driving while licence cancelled, suspended or revoked. Just 5:30pm on Sunday officers were called to Aggie Road. According to a witness, Craft was travelling at a "high rate of speed" when her 2001 Pontiac Grand Am rounded a corner and hit the under panel of his trailer.

Another witness told police that Craft, who was dressed in a white sweat shirt with no pants or shoes on, began yelling at him. According to the police report, she grabbed the man's daughter and got into his son's Power Wheels truck. The man told police he grabbed his children and took them to his parent's house. When he came back out he said Craft was still in the toy truck "trying to drive it." After he and his father made her get out of the truck, the man told police she began yelling and walked to her mother's house.

That's where police found her when they arrived. They say she was also "irate and very intoxicated." Officer Scott Byrd administered a portable breathalyzer test to Craft. "Because she could barely stand," he and Officer Cody Coley had to hold her shoulders "so that she would not fall over," according to Byrd's report. Byrd reported the PBT gave a reading of .217 blood alcohol content, which is nearly three times the legal limit. Craft was left at the jail in lieu of $2,067 surety bond.
