A man and woman were arrested early Friday morning after officers pulled their vehicle over for having no headlights on while it was dark, according to Floyd County Jail and Rome police reports.

According to the reports:

Nicholas Andrew Jones, 25, of 1610 Old Rockmart Road, Silver Creek, was driving down Turner McCall around 1:30 a.m. with his headlights off. Brittany Roseanne Mauser, 23, of 108 Wilshire Road, Rome, was in the passenger seat.

Officers reported a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle after it stopped in the parking lot of Winthrop Senior Living on U.S. 411. Jones was found to have a suspended driver’s license.

A search of the vehicle turned up a pill bottle in a brown purse containing a small plastic bag of marijuana and half of a pill of Xanax. Mauser stated it was hers. The Xanax was prescribed to another person.

Mauser was charged with felony possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

Jones was charged with driving while license suspended or revoked, window tint violation, and public drunkenness — all misdemeanor counts.

Jones was released on $2,386 bond while Mauser was released on $3,500 bond.
