SMITH COUNTY - A "following too close" stop ends with a semi driver arrested. It happened along I-20 Saturday night.
A semi heading from Arizona was pulled over. The truck was supposed to be going north to New York, instead the driver said he was going to Atlanta because he wasn't feeling well.
"I found this quite strange because he had a load of vegetables that needed to get on up to New York," said Smith County Deputy Investigator Mark Waters.
Deputy Waters searched the cab of the 18-wheeler and found the drugs. The driver was arrested, the semi was towed.
