There are few things as nerve-wracking as experiencing car problems when traveling on a Texas interstate. Unfortunately for a woman in Texas, this already stressful situation became even more difficult once police arrived on the scene. She now faces multiple drug charges as a result.
The incident reportedly happened during the evening hours of a day in mid-June. According to reports, police received a call about a vehicle that was stalled. When they arrived at the scene, officers claim to have discovered a woman and man, both 28 years old, standing outside of the vehicle. A tow truck was called.
Police say that when the woman pulled her driver’s license from her pocket, a prescription pill bottle containing Alprazolam fell out. They further claim that the woman initially provided them with a fake name; once they discovered her identity, reports state, they learned that there were warrants for her arrest due to parole violations. She was taken into custody on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and on the warrants; police say that a search of the woman and her vehicle resulted in the discovery of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and scales and small baggies.
In addition to several drug charges, including manufacture and/or delivery of a controlled substance, the woman is also charged with driving while intoxicated with an open alcohol container, among other charges. The man who was with her was released without charges. Unfortunately, the accusations that this Texas woman faces are serious, but she may feel unprepared to make the necessary critical decisions. Fortunately, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help her throughout the process.
