A fight at Porter Lounge may be the source of the blood on the windshield of a stolen car driven by a Lowndes County woman Saturday before she was arrested. 


Tiffany Craven, 23, of 195 Nichols Bend Road in Columbus, remained in Lowndes County jail this morning, awaiting an Oct. 15 hearing. She was arrested by Columbus Police Department late Saturday on two counts of felony taking of a vehicle and one count of DUI. 


A female complainant reported Craven and a male companion drove off in her gray 1998 Toyota Camry. 


There was damage to the front of the vehicle and windshield, and blood on the outside and the inside of the car. 


While the investigation is still pending, police said the male companion might have been involved in a fight at Porter Lounge on Highway 69, before the duo took off in the Camry. 


Craven, at some point, after an argument with her male companion, left him on the side of the road. She later pulled over on the Highway 82 bypass, and the driver of a white 2005 Ford F-150 stopped to assist, police said. 


Craven then drove away in the truck and crashed it at the corner of Lehmberg Road and Highway 182. 


The Lowndes County Sheriff''s Office responded to the accident and arrested Craven for DUI. 


The Columbus Police Department later charged her with two counts of felony taking of a vehicle. 


Craven already was on probation for a 2006 arrest on a felony charge of accessory after the fact; no further details on the previous arrest were available.
