A Johnson City woman injured when her car was rear-ended Wednesday wound up getting arrested on a drug charge, according to Johnson City police.

Danielle R. Davis, 25, 107 Rebeccas Lane, was stopped at the red light at Carroll Creek Road around 5 p.m. Wednesday when another motorist struck her from behind, according to a police report.

Davis was taken to Johnson City Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

While taking inventory of Davis’ car prior to it being towed because of damage sustained in the crash, an officer found a wallet in the glove box that contained approximately 25 grams of what was believed to be marijuana in 12 individual packages, according to the report. There were also three $20 bills.

Davis was told at the hospital that she would be charged with possession of marijuana for resale.

She argued the amount of marijuana that was in the car, and told the officer she was not a drug dealer and that the marijuana was for personal use, according to the report.

Davis was charged with possession of schedule VI drugs for resale.

She was being held in the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond.

A court date was pending.
