Jacobs was asleep in the driver’s seat with suspected marijuana in her lap. Officers woke her, and she was able to tell them where she was. When asked what was in her lap, she looked down and said it was CBD and brushed it onto the floor. When Jacobs exited the vehicle, officers could smell a strong marijuana odor. Jacobs agreed to take the sobriety test, which she performed poorly on but insisted it was because she had braces on both knees, although from the starting position, she was swaying heavily. Officers say Jacobs exhibited multiple physical factors of being impaired. While conducting a search, a bag of suspected marijuana and a handgun were found. Jacobs was taken into custody.
