Discovery of pill leads to drug charge

Sunday, February 3, 2013

A driver was charged with drug possession after a traffic stop Thursday night on 437 Bypass near Fairfield Pike, Shelbyville police said.

Police responding to a report of a van "all over the road" found Mark Wallace Reynolds, 42, of Frank Martin Road driving 73 mph in a 55 mph zone while straddling the center line, officer Jerry Draine's report said.

Reynolds failed field sobriety tests and was in possession of a Lorazepam pill not in a prescribed container, the report said.

Officers charged Reynolds with DUI, possession of a schedule IV drug, implied consent and speeding. He was released on $3,000 bond.
