38-year-old Tabitha Hopp was charged with failure to maintain lane, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of hydrocodone after she swerved over the outer white line and came to a stop with her vehicle halfway in the road.
On October 7th, Stewart County Sheriff’s Deputy Page reported seeing a vehicle drop in speed in a 55 mile-per-hour zone and swerve over the outer white line. Deputy Page stopped the vehicle to make contact, which came to a stop halfway on the road. At the driver’s seat was Tabitha Hopp.
Deputy Page asked Hopp to step out of the vehicle, at which point the deputy noticed an odor of alcohol emitting from her. Hopp consented to a vehicle search, during which was found crystal-like substances that tested positive for meth, half a Percocet in a cigarette pack, and two empty beer cans. Deputy Page then performed field sobriety tests, which Hopp passed.
Tabitha Hopp was arrested and charged with possession of hydrocodone, possession of methamphetamine, and failure to maintain lane. Her court date was set for October 29th, and she is no longer in custody.
