LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — On Saturday, March 20, at 5:02 p.m., London Police officers received a complaint for a possible intoxicated driver on Hal Rogers Parkway.  

Tabitha G. Lovins, 26, of 697 Gregory Branch Road, Manchester, was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), first offense; public intoxication of a controlled substance, and third-degree possession of a controlled substance.

Officer Jacob Bormann located Lovins' vehicle and noticed she was slumped over and unresponsive.  He was able to wake her and, soon after, arrested her for public intoxication.  

During a search, Officer Bormann located a clear bag in a pocket containing 32 pills, which were later identified by Poison Control as being Xanax.  In addition, another clear bag was found inside the passenger seat of the vehicle containing a white crystal substance.  The substance was field tested positive for methamphetamine.

According to police, Lovins told Officer Bormann the baggie in the vehicle was hers.
