Police said an officer running radar on Smith Ridge Road observed Jacoby traveling above the speed limit in the southbound lane while traveling northbound, nearly causing an accident.

She told police she had a medical marijuana license from the state, but upon further inspection, she was in the process of getting one, police said.
She posted a $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appaer in court on Friday, March 22.
