NASHVILLE , May 19 (UPI) -- It wasn't a super Sunday for a Tennessee woman, who has the same name as Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, after she was arrested on felony drug charges following a traffic stop in Nashville.

Manning, 18, was pulled over on Sunday night because she had her high beams on while driving in traffic.

Police smelled marijuana and asked the car's owner, Kenneth Sowards, if they could search the vehicle. The 18-year-old allegedly gave his consent and police discovered 44 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and a pill crusher in the back of the car.

They also found a fountain drink containing two plastic baggies holding a substance that tested positive for cocaine.

According to their arrest warrants, the pair's phones both had messages on them mentioning narcotics sales and cocaine usage, WKRN reported.

A church was within 1,000 feet of where Manning and Sowards were stopped, so they were both charged with felony possession of drugs in a drug-free zone in addition to other related charges.
