John Ford's Ex-Wife Arrested After Crash

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Tamara Mitchell-Ford, the ex-wife of former state Senator John Ford, was arrested after she was involved in a three-vehicle crash.

Memphis police say yesterday Mitchell-Ford rear-ended a truck that lunged forward and hit an sports utility vehicle.

She was taken to the hospital in non-critical condition and was arrested for an outstanding warrant for contempt of court and for driving on a revoked license.

Police are investigating whether she was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

Mitchell-Ford was arrested last month for driving under the influence and driving with a revoked license.

Mitchell-Ford has four children by Ford, who was convicted in April of taking $55,000 in bribes during the Tennessee Waltz investigation.
