LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a woman pulled over for texting while driving is in a lot more trouble after police found illegal substances in her car.
Jessica Dunn, age 21, was pulled over by police on Westport Road just before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, after police allegedly witnessed her texting while driving. Police say she did not have a driver's license -- only a permit.
"She was not wearing a seat belt as well," police say.
After the officer stopped her, police allegedly noticed the "strong odor of burnt marijuana" and police say Dunn admitted to having a "blunt" of marijuana in her possession, as well as prescription medication in the glove box.
That prescription medication was not in its proper container and was packaged as if it was meant to be sold, according to the arrest report.
A search of the vehicle also uncovered 100 additional prescription pain pills, police say.
Dunn was arrested and charged with a communication device violation, failure to wear a seat belt, an instructional permit violation, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and trafficking in a controlled substance.
