Woman out on bond crashes car into tree

An Franklin woman who was out of jail on bond after being arrested on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia several weeks ago crashed her car into a tree and told a sheriff’s deputy she was using meth.

Kristina Honeycutt, 26, was arrested on a charge of operating while intoxicated.

Honeycutt had been arrested for possession of paraphernalia April 28 and was released on bond.

A deputy responding to a call of a crash on old U.S. 31 near County Road 150S at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday found a car on the west side of the road that had crashed into a tree. Honeycutt, who was standing in the road, told deputies that she was the driver, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report said.

When asked if she was under the influence of any drugs, Honeycutt told the deputy twice that she had used meth, the report said. Her behavior was erratic, the deputy wrote in his report. Muscles in her arms and legs were twitching and her eyes were darting, and she swayed and fell to the ground, the report said. She was eventually taken to Johnson Memorial Hospital for a blood draw and examination, and she was rambling about random topics and struggled to form coherent sentences, the report said.

Honeycutt, 441 E. Jefferson St., Apt. 1, was arrested and taken to Johnson County jail where she was held on $500 bond.
