JPD: Woman charged with DWI after trying to drive off in toy truckJamie Craft (Source: Craighead Co. Sheriff's Office)

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 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 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 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.

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.

I absolutely despise that charge: refusal to submit. What a draconian way to say they didn't obey a request.

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.

Not only would I NOT hit it, not only would I advise YOU not to hit it, but I suspect it already got hit.

Repeatedly.

According to her Facebook, she likes Smirnoff, K-Mart fashion, Naked Twister LOL, Jack Daniels, and EFFIN Vodka.

Go figure.

Yes, of COURSE I sent her a friend request. LOL

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

:: refusal to submit ::

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

Oh, lawdy...I almost never watch TV so I was unfamiliar with this gem, and it may cause me to re-evaluate my appreciation for the TV medium.

Obviously a winning program that needs further research   ;-)

Mostly she just looks past caring in that shot. The facebook pic is much better.

Better disinfect the seat on that toy car.

Why did I immediately think “Arkansas” when I read this.

BJ Clinton would represent her if he still had a license.

I doubt it was a "plummet". More of a "stepping off of the curb" moment.:)

If you hit that, I suggest that you wear protection and bath in vodka or a stronger disinfectant.

I took the other approach. We shared blood.

Not intravenous drugs, we just patched into one anothers bloodline with a IV drip.

No reason. Just for the heck of it.

The neck, up is more than enough picture; I neither need nor want to see the rest of her! In fact, I’d even rather see the naked ape Helen Thomas photoshop, than see the rest of that thing.

Don't be so down on Arkansas. Some good things have come out of Arkansas too.

For example, "the Toothbrush".
Did you know that the toothbrush was invented in Arkansas?

How do we know this?
It's simple.
If it were invented anywhere else, it would be called the 'teethbrush'.
