DUI Stop On Overseas Highway Becomes Major Drug Bust, Police Say

A weekend traffic stop in the Florida Keys became a drug bust after deputies found several drugs inside a suspected drunken driver's car, police said. 

Michael Allen Holt, 46, of Plantation, faces charges of drug possession and driving under the influence.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office authorities said they pulled Holt over on Saturday after a number of drivers called 911 to report a black Mustang GT nearly causing several head-on collisions. That Mustang was being driven by Holt.

Deputies said Holt smelled of marijuana and struggled to roll down his window when a deputy approached his car.

Holt was unsteady on his feet, slurred his speech and failed a field sobriety test, deputies said.

Aside from being under the influence, authorities found two ounces of hallucinogenic mushrooms and more than three ounces of marijuana inside Holt's car. The deputy also found a digital scale, a grinder and rolling papers.
