According to a citation, deputies were on Log Cabin Road and observed a vehicle come off of Arthur Jackson. The deputy had several narcotic complaints off of Arthur Jackson Road and noticed the driver would not make eye contact and continued as the deputy checked the license plate.

When Neace spoke with the deputy, she allegedly had an odor of alcohol on her breath.

A canine was deployed and alerted to the passenger side front door seam. Neace was then asked to step out. Two bottles of opened rum were found in the vehicle—one in her purse and the other behind the rear passenger seat.

A $20 bill was found in her purse with a heavy white substance. Neace allegedly declined a field sobriety test and to answer any questions on the scene.

She did submit to a blood draw at Baptist Health. She was then taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
