When people in North Carolina and across the country contact police, they likely do so with the intention that the arrival of law enforcement officers will lead to assistance. Unfortunately, one woman now faces drug charges after police were called to a home. The details prompting the call are unclear.

In fact, a father and son were recently arrested and now face drug charges.

Though the men were not arrested until early September, reports indicate that the 60-year-old and 30-year-old father-son pair had been under investigation by the State Bureau of Investigation for a month prior to that. As part of that investigation, undercover agents reportedly purchased marijuana from the men. It is unclear why agents initially started an investigation against the men.

Sideswipping incident results in DWI charge in North Carolina

Anyone who has ever driven has likely had an experience where they drifted slightly out of their lane.

Reports indicate that the 58-year-old woman was driving on a North Carolina road at approximately 11:15 a.m. on a day in August. According to reports, her vehicle allegedly sideswiped a vehicle that was stopped at a traffic light. The first driver is said to have left the scene.

Selling your study drugs is not worth the risks

In your college orientation, you may have heard of the benefits of eating a healthy diet, exercising and getting adequate sleep to maximize your chances of success in your academics. You may have tried this, but nothing seemed to provide clarity and focus quite like popping one or two of your ADHD pills.

Maybe you have taken Adderall, Ritalin or another stimulant since elementary or middle school, or perhaps your doctor prescribed it at your request when you started college. You may have shared some with a friend or two, and before you knew it, you had a nice little side business, especially around exam time. However, as helpful as you may think these drugs are for your academic achievement, they are also placing you at risk for serious legal trouble.
