A toolbox in the truck contained Soma and Hydrocodone and a further search of the vehicle produced a clear plastic bag containing marijuana.
Estlinbaum admitted he had been drinking and failed a standard field sobriety test. He was charged with Driving While Intoxicated, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. Lindsay was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence.
