Melissa A. Story, 25, was charged with first- and second-degree possession of a controlled substance, first-degree promoting contraband, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence of an intoxicant.

At 2:02 a.m., an officer stopped the a vehicle that was being driven erratically by Story, according to a Richmond police report.

The officer reported that he found Story too impaired to drive. After arresting her on a DUI charge, he searched her and found several Xanax pills, a Klonopin pill, a small amount of methamphetamine and two small straws containing suspected drug residue, the RPD report stated.
