Police: Pair face charges after fight

Staff report

A Mayfield pair faces DUI charges related to a fight while driving along a rural county road, police said.

Sheriff's deputies received a call at about 10 a.m. Sunday from a man reporting his girlfriend struck him and drove their vehicle into a tree in an attempt to kill him along West Slaughter Road, south of Mayfield, reported Deputy George Workman.

Police arrived in the area but couldn't locate the vehicle until Workman stopped the pair driving near Pryorsburg. The driver of the vehicle, Delton Howry, 32, was bleeding from the nose, Workman said, although there was no damage to the vehicle.

Howry told police his live-in girlfriend, Jamie Crews, 36, was driving from Paris, Tenn., when the two got into an argument near Sedalia. Howry alleged Crews began hitting him and driving erratically, and said she was going to drive into a tree and kill him. Crews drove off the roadway at which point Howry got out, entered the driver's seat and drove away with Crews in the passenger seat instead of waiting for police.

Both Crews and Howry appeared to be under the influence and were given field sobriety tests, Workman said. Crews also stated she hit Howry during their argument.

Crews and Howry both face DUI charges, and Crews also faces an assault charge. The two were taken to the Graves County Jail.
