(Jonesboro, AR)  —  An Arkansas woman is facing a number of charges this week after she recently tried to flee from police in a Power Wheels battery-powered truck.  But it turns out she caused the real damage in her 2001 Pontiac Grand Am.  According to KAIT-TV, Jonesboro police say witnesses saw Jamie Jeanette Craft driving the vehicle at “a high rate of speed” and ultimately crashing into a trailer home Sunday evening.  The man who owns the trailer says Craft — who was supposedly doing all of this without pants — tried to escape the scene of the accident in his son’s toy truck.  But he made her leave the truck behind, forcing her to walk to her mother’s house, where police eventually caught up with her.  Craft reportedly had a blood alcohol content that measured nearly three times the legal limit at the time of her arrest.  She has been charged with driving while intoxicated, public intoxication, leaving the scene of an accident, and more.
