A traffic stop early this morning led to the arrest of a driver on drug and drunk driving charges.

Bartholomew County deputies were responding to a report of a possible drunk driver when they saw the vehicle, pulling a trailer without a license plate and changing lanes without signalling on Interstate 65 at 3:12 a.m.. After pulling the driver over, a deputy could allegedly smell alcohol on the driver, 42-year-old Amanda Sloan from Decatur, Alabama.

After being arrested and taken to the jail, a pipe containing a small amount of methamphetamine was allegedly found inside Sloan’s shirt.

Sloan is facing preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, as well as operating a motor vehicle under the influence.
