A Choudrant woman involved in a vehicle crash in downtown Ruston Monday afternoon found herself facing charges involving eight separate warrants for her arrest and remained in the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on Tuesday.

A Ruston Police Department patrol unit responded to a crash at the intersection of Dan Reneau Drive and South Monroe Street around 3 p.m. Monday.
