(Spencer)-- There's never a good time to have a flat tire but that was especially the case for a woman in Clay county who wound up getting arrested on drug charges.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office says a deputy Monday came across a vehicle on the side of the road in the 3800 mile of County Road M-27 with a flat tire. While the deputy was speaking with the driver, it was determined she was under the influence of illegal substances. A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up a small quantity of drugs and paraphernalia.

The driver, 41-year-old Melissa Stofferan of Primghar, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
