COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)-A Columbus man faces a slew of charges after failing to obey.

Police say Jones was attempting to crawl under a forklift parked in front of Taggart Auction.

Jones is charged with 10 different charges including: Reckless Driving, Failure to Obey, and Disobeying Traffic Control Device.
