A traffic stop for failure to maintain lane resulted in drug trafficking charges for a Gay, Ga., woman when more than an ounce of suspected methamphetamine was found in her vehicle.

Kimberly Chapman, 53, was charged with trafficking in illegal drugs and failure to maintain lane, according to Fayette County Jail records.

Sheriff Barry Babb said Chapman during the afternoon hours of Dec. 5 was stopped by a deputy on Rising Star Road for failure to maintain lane.

Babb said Chapman was in possession of more than an ounce of suspected methamphetamine.

In another incident, a man and woman were arrested in connection with a Dec. 5 altercation at the man’s home in Brooks.

Gregory Hunt, 47, was charged with aggravated assault, according to Fayette County Jail records.
