(Craighead County, AR) A 29-year-old Jonesboro woman was arrested Sunday on several charges, including driving while intoxicated, disorderly conduct and leaving the scene of an accident after she allegedly crashed into a mobile home and tried to getaway by using a Power Wheels truck.

According to court papers, Jamie Craft was speeding in a Pontiac Grand AM when she rounded a corner and hit the under panel of the home.

Craft allegedly got out of the car with only a sweatshirt on and tried to drive away in a child’s battery-operated truck. Police arrived and found the woman “irate and very intoxicated.”

Police said Craft’s blood alcohol content was almost three times the legal limit.
