Detroit — What began as a routine traffic stop ended in multiple charges for a man and woman pulled over Thursday night by troopers from the Michigan State Police.

According to the state police, officers stopped a 2002 Lincoln on Dresden Street near State Fair at about 9:45 p.m. on suspicion of driving while under the influence.

After they stopped the vehicle, troopers reported they smelled burned marijuana coming from the vehicle, which was being driven by a 40-year-man who lives in Roseville.

The driver reportedly told troopers he had been smoking marijuana shortly before being pulled over. His passenger was identified as a 34-year-old female from Detroit who had two misdemeanor warrants for her arrest.

A search of the car turned up two stun guns with the word “police” printed on the top, one gram of marijuana, 60 acetaminophen/hydrocodone pills and a bong.

Both suspects were arrested and remain in custody pending review by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.
