NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Police in Nashville, Tenn., arrested Peyton Manning early Monday morning.

Breathe easy, Broncos fans. It wasn’t your team’s star quarterback.

The 18-year-old woman who shares the same name as the quarterback is facing two felony drug charges, The Tennessean reported. She was arrested after a traffic stop when police say she was driving her high beams on and the arresting officer smelled marijuana in the car.

A search of the vehicle uncovered two mason jars of marijuana and baggies of cocaine dissolving in a cup of Coke, according to the police affidavit, The Tennessean reported.

She was charged with possession of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She is in jail on a $20,000 bond.

    That Is So Stupid Arresting Someone With High Beem Head Lights On!!! You Have To Especially If You Don’t Know The Road!!

    If passing another driver who is heading in the opposite direction on the road, it is a ticketable offense to leave your high beams on as it can impair that driver’s vision. She wasn’t arrested for passing another vehicle at night without reverting to her low beams but for the drugs discovered after she was pulled over (which, as the article states, the officer discovered upon checking her vehicle once they noticed the smell of marijuana)–which makes the officer who made the traffic stop the arresting officer.
    If her car had not had the scent of marijuana in it, she would have merely received a ticket for not reverting to her low beams upon passing another vehicle and there would be nothing more to the matter.
