driving near 11th and Chestnut Streets that had its bright headlights on. As the deputy passed the vehicle, he reports that the driver did not dim them.

Jackson says the deputy initiated a traffic stop and spoke with the driver and passengers. One of the passengers was identified as 50-year-old Angela Pferer, of California Street. Authorities say Pferer had an outstanding warrant from Lawrence County. As she was being taken into custody, Pferer allegedly told Deputy Bush that she was in possession of narcotic drugs.

Jackson says that Pferer was booked in the Bartholomew County Jail on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Heroin, along with the outstanding warrant. She is being held without bond.
