A 56-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on Highway 259N, Sunday afternoon, according to a local news source.
Edmonson County sheriff officials said that a Chevy sedan with a missing driver-side mirror was traveling along Highway 259N when it suddenly crossed the yellow line. Officers asked the driver to pull over and performed a field sobriety test on the driver who was identified as 56-year-old Theresa Taymon. After a K-9 gave a positive indication on her car, officials searched Taymon and the car, finding meth.
Authorities arrested Taymon on the scene and booked her into the Hart County Jail. She is charged with Wanton Endangerment, 1st Degree, Possession of Controlled Substance, 1st Degree/Methamphetamine, Operating Motor Vehicle under the Influence of Drugs, 1st Offense, and No Rearview Mirror.
