Woman admits to injecting drug

A Corbin woman was arrested Friday after deputies found her passed out behind the wheel of a car that was stuck in a ditch, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Nancy Uhlig, 41, and her passenger, Becky Grubb, 34, were both arrested about 11:30 p.m. after Deputy Mikey Ashurst responded to a complaint about a Pontiac Grand Prix in a ditch on Level Green Road near its intersection with Auger Springs Road.

Uhlig said she had been drinking liquor at a friends house and was trying to get herself and Grubb home. Root said she was found to have a used syringe in her possession.

It was determined that Uhlig was under the influence so she was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia, and numerous traffic violations.

Grubb, who had left the car in an attempt to find someone to pull it out of the ditch, admitted she had injected a painkiller. She was charged with public intoxication – controlled substances.

Both Uhlig and Grubb were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
