BLACK OAK, AR (KAIT) -

A woman faces felony drug charges after police say she plowed into a backhoe.

The crash happened earlier this year on State Highway 18 in Black Oak.

According to a bench warrant for her arrest, 42-year-old Stacey Ann Hart of Monette slammed into the rear of a slow-moving backhoe.

When first responders opened her door, they reported a glass drug pipe fell out.

Upon closer inspection, Arkansas State Police Trooper Dustin Morgan stated the pipe contained residue of suspected methamphetamine.

During an inventory of Hart’s vehicle, Morgan said he also found a wallet in the driver’s floorboard containing approximately 1 gram of meth.

Hart was taken to Regional One Medical Center in Memphis for treatment of her injuries. Two vials of her blood were drawn and sent to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for analysis.

After reviewing the affidavit, a judge found probable cause to charge her with felony possession of a controlled substance, possession of an instrument of crime, DWI-drugs, and careless and prohibited driving. A bench warrant was issued at that time for her arrest.

On Wednesday, July 11, Hart appeared in video court before Craighead County District Judge Tommy Fowler who set her bond at $3,500 cash/surety. Her next court appearance will be at the Lake City courthouse on Aug. 2.
