An early morning traffic stop lead to the arrest of a Humphreys resident for alleged DWI - drugs, and other crimes, with a minor child in the vehicle.

According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox, at about 1:30 a.m. on March 3, a deputy with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) reported seeing a vehicle on Highway 190 and U.S. Highway 65 involved in lane violations and not consistently driving on the right side of the roadway.

“The report shows the deputy noticed a very strong odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the vehicle and also a very small child in the car,” Cox said.

Further investigation led to the arrest of Ashlee Mast, 18, Humphreys, for alleged DWI-drugs and the seizure of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia from the vehicle. Mast was processed and released on a summons.

“We encourage everyone to be sober when you operate a vehicle, this includes not using marijuana, other drugs, stimulants, and/or alcoholic beverages - otherwise you endanger every person in your vehicle and on or along the roadways you travel,” cox said, adding that additional investigation continues.
