Bartolotti charged Mclain with DUI, second offense with aggravating circumstances; trafficking in a controlled substance, first degree, first offense/two grams meth; possession of drug paraphernalia; wanton endangerment, second degree; license not in possession; careless driving; criminal possession of a forged instrument, second degree; and on the execution of a warrant for another agency.

Nance was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, first degree, first offense/two grams meth; possession of drug paraphernalia; endangering the welfare of a minor; and criminal possession of a forged instrument, second degree.

Both are being lodged in the Hopkins County Jail.
