A Rock Hill, South Carolina woman was arrested last Thursday morning, after it was reported by police that she was asleep at the wheel of her car with a glass pipe in her hand. The 25-year-old woman was arrested, and charged with her first offense of possession of marijuana, and driving under suspension.
The Buick Park Avenue belonging to the woman had a damaged passenger side wheel, which occurred as a result of a collision with a curb in the parking lot. Tire marks, wheel hub grease, and vehicle parts were also found in the Taco Bell parking lot. Further, according to the report, when the officers approached the car, they saw the woman attempting to hide the pipe she was holding. Police found that the woman’s license had been taken a few days earlier. They allegedly found two grams of marijuana, and a generic Xanax pill.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police recently set-up a checkpoint along the 6600 block of WT Harris Boulevard near Harris Center Drive in northeast Charlotte. The police were very productive in the amount of charges that were garnered as a result of the checkpoint with a staggering ten DWI’s in one night. Other charges include twelve charges for people who were driving with their license revoked, seventeen for not carrying their operator’s license, two without insurance, three people for drug charges, and one was even found with a gun. The total number of charges was an incredible seventy-two.
Courts within the State of North Carolina, as well as throughout the United States have found that it is in the public’s best interest to allow checkpoints to find intoxicated drivers as well as those committing various offenses. However, there are some limitations with how officers may conduct themselves, and this can sometimes result in a dismissal or mitigation of a charge.

A 28-year-old Alamance County man has been charged in Superior Court to habitual driving while impaired after he was found to be under the influence of the prescription anxiety medication, Clonazepam. The man also pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance on jail premises when Clonazepam was found on him as he was being processed at the Alamance Detention Center.
These charges took place last year. The man has two previous DWI convictions; one in 2004 and the other in 2011. Police entered into a plea deal with the offender when he agreed to plead guilty to the DWI and possession of a controlled substance charge in exchange for the dismissal of a possession of a stolen motor vehicle charge and a possession of stolen goods charge.
Thereafter, the man was issued a 25 to 39 month active sentence on the DWI and a consecutive 15 to 27 month sentence on the drug possession charge with 122 days time served.
