According to the Warren County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded around 10:35 p.m. Sunday to Jackson Bridge Road, where a knife was reportedly displayed during a disturbance.

Craft was arrested on charges of first-degree criminal mischief, first-degree fleeing or evading police (motor vehicle), operating a motor vehicle while under the influence (second offense), driving on a license suspended for DUI, second-degree fleeing or evading police (on foot), no registration plates, failure to maintain insurance, second-degree disorderly conduct and third-degree terroristic threatening.
