(FLOYD CO.) - Indiana Conservation Officers arrested a Louisville, KY woman Monday morning along Interstate 64 in Floyd County.

Police arrested 19-year-old Kayla Crawford on charges of possession of meth, possession of controlled substance, possession of marijuana, battery on a police officer, and resisting law enforcement.

Shortly after 10 a.m., Floyd County Dispatch received a report of a physical domestic disturbance on Interstate 64, near exit 119, and Indiana Conservation Officer Paul Crockett was nearby.

Officer Crockett observed Crawford walking barefoot into oncoming interstate traffic and she fled upon his commands to stop.

A foot pursuit ensued, and upon apprehension, Crawford allegedly bit a Milltown Police Officer, who had arrived to assist. After Crawford was taken into custody, she was found to be in possession of meth, multiple prescription pills, and marijuana.

Crawford was arrested and incarcerated at the Floyd County Jail.

The other party involved in the domestic disturbance was not located at the scene.

Assisting agencies included Milltown Police, Indiana State Police, and New Albany Police.
