Kirby told officers that she did not have a prescription for the tablets and had bought them from somebody.

Kirby was charged with leaving the scene of an accident-failure to render aid or assistance, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, first offense, failure to produce insurance card, possession of controlled substance, third degree – drug unspecified, and prescription controlled substance not in proper container, first offense.

She is being lodged in the Hopkins County Jail.
