LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman has been arrested after police say she was dealing drugs near a Louisville middle school.

According to an arrest warrant, it happened Dec. 18. Police say 33-year-old Amber D. White was within 1,000 feet of Kennedy Metropolitan Middle School on Taylorsville Road, near Stony Brook Drive, when she was stopped by police.
