Crawford had 29 misdemeanor warrants for his arrest at the time he was taken into custody. Police said the warrants were for traffic violations, eluding police, resisting arrest and reckless endangerment. He was also charged with attempting to elude for the Wednesday pursuit.

He was booked into the Morgan County Jail without bond.
