During a drug test at the county jail, police said Terrell tested positive for meth, marijuana and benzodiazepines (a psychoactive drug).
 
Police have charged Terrell with DWI-drugs, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying a weapon, careless driving, driving left of center, expired vehicle license and no proof of insurance.
