Kentucky State Police arrested a man for marijuana possession and first-degree controlled substance trafficking (10 dosage units or more, date rape drug) after troopers pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 75 that was going slower than other traffic and weaving in the lanes.
Police thought the driver may have been under the influence or fatigued, according to a citation. When troopers spoke with the driver, Vincent Hudson, 35, Gwinnett, Georgia, he said he was tired and was going to stop at exit 87 to take a break.
While troopers were talking to Gwinnett, they smelled marijuana, but Gwinnett denied consent to search the vehicle, the citation states. A police dog was then called and indicated the presence of drugs.
Troopers searched the vehicle and found a small amount of marijuana and about 4,000 pills of suspected ecstasy, the citation states. They took Gwinnett to the KSP post, where the DEA was called, and federal charges may be pending after lab results.
Gwinnett was then taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Thursday afternoon, according to online jail records.
