A gold Mustang was stopped around 2:30 p.m. for reckless driving, and the driver was identified as Christopher Steven Bray from Ohio.

Bray was taken out of the vehicle after being suspected of being under the influence of drugs.

The passenger, Lacee Seymour, also of Ohio, and her 9-year-old son were asked to exit the vehicle with their two small dogs.
