The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says a woman was arrested after walking in the road on Highway 1006. Deputies say during the investigation they found 30 year old Brittany Lynn Meadows of Beverly had two outstanding warrants for her arrest. As they were taking her into custody deputies say she pulled a Suboxone strip out and tried to put it in her mouth. They said after a brief struggle Meadows was cuffed. They said Meadows told them she tried to eat the drugs so she would not be charged for having them. Meadows was charged with possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest and on two warrants out of Harlan County. She was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
