Blotter: Two arrested on warrants, drug charges after traffic stop

A man was arrested on drug charges Wednesday after police pulled over a vehicle, in which he was a passenger, for having outstanding warrants and an expired registration near the 600 block of Interstate 35E.

A woman, 37, was also arrested on outstanding warrants for failure to maintain financial responsibility and no driver's license.

Police said the woman was driving an older model Infiniti in the southbound lanes of Fort Worth Drive when officers pulled her over on the warrant and expired registration. The registration had been expired since 2014, the police report said.

The vehicle was eventually towed from the scene because the driver didn't have insurance. Both occupants were taken to Denton City Jail. The man was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a dangerous drug.

The report did not specify the reason for the drugs charges.
