Woman charged with DWI after vehicle crash

A woman faces charges for driving while impaired, as well as other pending charges after a run-in with police early Friday morning.
According to incident reports, Salisbury Police officers responded to a call about a vehicle crash at Lee St. and Monroe St. in Salisbury.
When they arrived, a man reported a truck had hit two cars in his backyard, as well as a pole and a street sign, and then left, heading into the wooded area behind his house.
Officers walked through the wooded area toward some railroad tracks, where they could see taillights and a woman “screaming and yelling,” according to Capt. Shelia Lingle.
Jennifer Ann Craig, 39, got out of the driver’s seat and stumbled, appearing to be intoxicated. Her husband was in the passenger seat of the truck.
Craig had an injury to her hand.
She told the officers that she had just left Nashville Nights and had just dropped a friend off.
“She said she had an AK-47 in the truck,” Lingle said.
When officers asked Craig where she was, she told them she was in China Grove.
The officers called EMS because of Craig’s hand injury and she was complaining of neck pain.
When paramedics arrived, she “started yelling, kicking and screaming,” Lingle said.
Craig eventually calmed down enough to be taken to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center. Her husband was taken as well because of possible injury.
When Craig was told she would be charged with DWI during her blood test, she “slung her arm and got blood on the officer,” Lingle said, adding that she laughed when the blood splattered on the officer’s uniform.
Craig was charged with driving while impaired and will likely face other charges within the next few days.
