A Jonesboro 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 childs 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 license cancelled, suspended or revoked.
Just 5:30 p.m. Sunday officers were called to 4303 Aggie Road. According to a witness, Craft was traveling 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 mans daughter and got into his sons Power Wheels truck.
The man told police he grabbed his children and took them to his parents 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 mothers house.
Thats 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 Byrds report.
Byrd reported the PBT gave a reading of .217 blood alcohol content, which is nearly three times the legal limit.
During the investigation, Officer Coley reported Craft started to yell and scream. She continued to scream after she was placed into custody and began to kick the door of his police car, he reported.
Craft continued to be very disorderly and uncooperative once she arrived at Craighead County Detention Center, according to the report.
Craft was left at the jail in lieu of $2,067 surety bond.
She is not being charged with driving the electric toy which measures 4ft 3in by 3ft.
Haha....drunk redneck b!tches....gotta love’em....
I absolutely despise that charge: refusal to submit. What a draconian way to say they didn't obey a request.
I don't know that Laz would hit it.
For $2,800 bucks and a few six packs, bailing that chick out of jail could lead to one of the wildest weekends of your life. Throw in a few weeks supply of amphetamines and you could stretch it to a full month. It won’t end well though, so end it quick and without real names.
No, I’d hit it.
Not only would I NOT hit it, not only would I advise YOU not to hit it, but I suspect it already got hit.
About the head.
Well, unless you meant with a closed hand, you’ve just plummeted into totally desperate land.
She should hook up with the dude from the unrelated incident of peeing in the parking lot...they deserve each other
According to her Facebook, she likes Smirnoff, K-Mart fashion, Naked Twister LOL, Jack Daniels, and EFFIN Vodka.
Yes, of COURSE I sent her a friend request. LOL
Craft was traveling at a high rate of speed when her 2001 Pontiac Grand Am rounded a corner and hit the under panel of his trailer....Kinda left that out didn’t we?
Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!
29? Either that has to be one of the most unflattering mug shots ever, or she redefines “rode hard and put away wet”.
OK, a 20 something drunk blonde with no pants crashes into my single-wide in the trailer park. Weighing the potential damage v. the potential mitigating agreement, I’d have not hit the po-po speed dial. Does everyone have to be a victim in this country?
With a friend like that, life will never be boring. You'll be on a first-name basis with all the local law enforcement and criminal defense attorneys, trauma surgeons and abortionists, learn the 'best' ways to mix vodka, Red Bull, valium and Oxycontin into a tasty cocktail while in the back seat of a sedan traveling at a high rate of speed, interact with a wide range of "friends" she brings home after dancing her shift and one day you'll wake up with a splitting headache as she stands over you with an electric saw
Sure! Sounds great! Sign me up!

Any comment from our “legal beagles” on the constitutionality of such a charge/law?
