Richmond Police arrested Joseph Crabtree, age 20, Sycamore Drive, for Wanton Endangerment 2nd Degree Saturday night after he was involved in a traffic accident. Police say they determined Crabtree was under the influence of intoxicants. A two-year-old child was in Crabtree’s vehicle at the time of the accident.
The minor accident was on the Eastern Bypass around 6:36 p.m.
When officers arrived, they say Crabtree appeared to be under the influence of some type of intoxicant other than alcohol. Crabtree subsequently failed several field sobriety tests and was taken into custody for DUI.
He was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center while the toddler was released to a family member.
