Marcum told the officer she did not have a license and purchased the vehicle earlier in the day. She was asked her name and misspelled her middle name twice in saying it out loud for the officer.
She said she had proof of purchase of the vehicle at home, but was unaware there was no license plate.
The officer confirmed Marcum had no driver’s license, just a permanent ID card.
She reportedly told the officer, “I’m really sorry. I told him I did smoke a little bit of weed before I left and I forgot to turn on my lights because it is my first time driving.”
She also said, “… that’s the only reason why I took the risk, because I’ll pay the fine and go to court and I’ll admit to my wrong.”
She produced a 0.019 after taking a Breathalyzer test, and taken to the hospital for a urine test.
