Slowest Police Chase Ever
It's never a good idea to get behind the wheel of car after you've been drinking and it's an even worse idea to crash your car and try to hijack a child's electric toy truck. They're not very good off road plus they get shitty gas mileage.
The plastered mugshot above is of 29yr. old Jamie Craft from Jonesboro, AK and she tied off her weekend with a bang. This past Sunday Jamie decided to do a little day drinking and ended up getting herself a free trip to jail. It all started when an officer noticed her driving her 2001 Grand Am at high speeds and weaving in and out of traffic. About the time the officer decided to give chase Craft slammed her car into a trailer after hanging a turn just a little too tight. Residents of the trailer park came out to see what the commotion was all about and that's when they saw Craft emerge from the car without her pants or shoes. That's when things got interesting, a witness told police she became combative, screaming and yelling at people on the scene. The witness said he feared for his children and tried to take them inside but Craft grabbed the man's daughter and tried to flee in his son's electric toy truck. Yes, the little battery powered truck with the plastic tires.
The witness was able to get his daughter back and flee to his parents trailer but when he came back out a few minutes later Craft was still sitting in the electric truck trying to figure out how to drive it. Eventually the witness and his father dragged Craft from the toy and told her to leave. She stumbled back to her mother's trailer where police found her just a minutes later. When officers arrived they said that Craft was still pretty fired up and would not cooperate during the arrest. The arresting officers gave her a breathalyzer and to no one surprise she blew 3 times the legal limit and was charged with DWI, public intoxication, refusal to submit, disorderly conduct, leaving the scene of an accident, property damage, and finally driving without a valid license. No word if the toy truck suffered any damages.
