Peyton Manning arrested in south Nashville drug bust
A traffic stop in south Nashville Sunday night turned into a drug bust and the arrest of a woman with the same name as star quarterback Peyton Manning.
According to an affidavit, police pulled over Manning, 18, and Kenneth Sowards on Elm Hill Pike near Briley Parkway because their high beams were on in traffic.
Manning was behind the wheel while Sowards, who owns the vehicle, was in the passenger seat, police said.
Officers noticed a marijuana odor coming from the car and Sowards, also 18, gave police verbal permission to search it.
The affidavit states two plastic baggies with a white powdery substance inside were found floating in a cup of Coca-Cola sitting in the console. The substance field tested positive for cocaine.
