Nashville authorities recently arrested a woman suspected of driving a vehicle while under the influence of marijuana and endangering her child after she got involved in an accident, an article of Fox 17 News reported on January 10.

Reports said 38-year-old April Davis was driving a vehicle with her 3-month-old baby when she got involved in a chain-reaction collision that affected two other vehicles. Responding police told reports that the interior of Davis vehicle had strong marijuana odor. Police later recovered a marijuana blunt inside her vehicle and found that she had been driving with an invalid license. Police also noted that the baby was not properly restrained in the car seat. Appropriate charges were filed against Davis.
