When deputies in the Florida Keys pulled over a vehicle because they suspected that the driver was under the influence of alcohol they allegedly discovered drugs and paraphernalia leading them to believe that he was stoned instead of drunk.

On Saturday in the late afternoon, it was reported that several people called 911 in order to notify the authorities about the driver of a vehicle that they believed was operating his car erratically, and they were worried that he was going to cause an accident.

A police sergeant was working in the area that the callers had seen the Mustang GT allegedly being operated in an alarming manner and he was able to get the driver to come to a stop.

32-year-old Jerilee Hughes was arrested after the Northwest Narcotics Task Force searched her home and found glass jars with psilocybin mushroom spores and growing supplies, as well as a small bag of useable mushrooms. Police also procured small amounts of marijuana and methamphetamine as well as residue-coated paraphernalia.

Hughes faces two felony and five misdemeanor drug related charges. During her bond hearing, the prosecuting attorney accused Hughes of cultivating enough mushrooms to consider her a danger to the community. She is being held on $10,000 bond.

Due to financial hardship, Hughes, who alleges she has never before been implicated in legal issues, asked for a lower bond. She willingly offered to participate if a stipulation was added where she take part in regular drug testing.
