This shocking news about a woman being arrested for a misdemeanor is unusual, because it led to an arrest based on a warrant. Police in Columbus, Indiana, reported that they had stopped a 22-year-old woman on a routine traffic stop for an equipment violation. At that point, the officers reported that they could smell marijuana coming from the car, which led them to investigate the woman further.
After the 22-year-old woman was taken into custody, the police located a small amount of marijuana in her vehicle. She was arrested on a misdemeanor charge for the possession of marijuana at that point, but officers looked further into who she was by checking her driver's license. When the license check returned, the officers noted that the woman was wanted under a no-bond warrant from St. Mary's County in Maryland.
