Glasgow police officers observed Abbott operating a vehicle after receiving a complaint she had taken an insurance card. Police pulled Abbott over and upon contact with her they noticed she appeared to be emotional and disoriented.
Police called the insurance company listed on the card Abbott gave them and learned the insurance policy belonged to another person / vehicle. Police then used its drug dog to search the vehicle. Police found four 10 mg Lortab pills in the front of the vehicle. Abbott pulled 26 Lortab pills, also 10 mg, from her bra. She told police she was going to sell the pills to "survive," according to the report.
Police administered field sobriety tests. Abbott showed two clues on one test, but refused the balance test due to optical reasons. Abbott's pupils did not react to light. Abbott gave blood and urine samples at T.J. Samson Community Hospital. Results of those tests are still pending.
Abbott was lodged in the Barren County Detention Center. A bond for Abbott was pending at press time, according to information on the jail's website. Abbott is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
