Kait8 reports a 29-year-old woman from Jonesboro Arkansas was arrested for DWI after attempting to leave an accident scene in a child’s Power Wheels truck.
A witness reported that at approximately 5:30 p.m. on a Sunday, a woman was driving a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am at a fast speed, rounded a corner, and then hit his mobile home’s under panel.
Another witness reported that the woman began yelling at the trailer’s owner, grabbed the man’s daughter, and then got into his son’s battery-operated truck. The woman was dressed in a white sweatshirt, and was not wearing any pants or shoes.
Apart from DWI, the woman was also charged with disorderly conduct, refusal to submit, public intoxication, leaving the accident scene with property damage, and driving with a suspended, cancelled, or revoked license.
The man then gathered his children and took them to their grandparent’s house. According to the man, the woman was still in trying to drive the toy truck by the time he came back out.
After the man and his father made the woman get out of the Power Wheels truck, the women reportedly began yelling and stormed off to her mother’s house. It was here the police found her, seemingly infuriated and intoxicated.
The arresting officer administered a portable breath test to the driver. He stated that he had to hold the woman’s shoulders because she could barely stand. Her breath test results showed a BAC reading of .217, almost thrice the legal limit.
The officer also recounted that the woman began to scream and shout during the investigation. She began to kick the door of the police car and continued to act disorderly and uncooperatively, even after being placed in custody and arriving at the Craighead County Detention Center.
The woman was left in jail in lieu of a surety bond amounting to $2,067.
