44-year-old Jennifer Green was charged with DUI, driving on a revoked license, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of meth and Xanax when she drifted into the oncoming lane on Hartsville Pike in Lebanon and almost hit a police car head on.
On July 26th, Deputy Matt Lanius was on patrol when a vehicle drifted over the yellow line and continued toward his vehicle head-on. Deputy Lanius was forced to use evasive action to avoid being struck by the vehicle. The car was still traveling in and out of the drive lane when Deputy Lanius turned around to initiate a traffic stop. The officer made contact with Jennifer Green, noticed she couldn’t sit still and appeared to be on some substance. Deputy Lanius administered multiple field sobriety tests and Green exhibited signs of impairment during each one.
Officer Lanius found a pipe next to the driver seat coated in a burned residue. During a search, police discovered a small bag containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine and a plastic bag containing twelve pills identified as Xanax. Jennifer Green had been convicted of three prior DUIs in Wilson and DeKalb County. She also had one previous conviction of driving on a revoked license.
Jennifer Green was arrested and charged with DUI, driving on a revoked license, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of meth and Xanax. Her bond was set at $5,000.
