JONESBORO, Ark., March 6 (UPI) -- Police in Arkansas said a woman charged with driving while intoxicated allegedly struck a trailer home with her car and attempted to drive off in a toy truck.

Jonesboro police said witnesses reported Jamie Jeanette Craft, 29, was driving her 2001 Pontiac Grand Am at "a high rate of speed" around 5:30 p.m. Sunday when she hit the panel under the witness' Jonesboro trailer with her car, KAIT-TV, Jonesboro, reported Wednesday.

Another witness said Craft, who was wearing a white sweat shirt with no pants or shoes, argued with him and grabbed his daughter before trying to drive off in his son's Power Wheels battery-powered toy truck.

The man said he and his father forced the woman to leave the toy truck and she walked to her mother's house, where she was found by police.

Police said a portable breathalyzer test was administered and Craft, who officers said was having trouble standing, gave a reading of .217 blood alcohol content, nearly three times the legal limit for driving.

Craft was charged with driving while intoxicated, public intoxication, refusal to submit, disorderly conduct, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage and driving while license canceled, suspended or revoked. She was jailed in lieu of $2,067 surety bond.
