A Brown County deputy immediately observed a defective brake light on the suspect vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. During the stop, the deputy noticed an odor of burnt marijauan coming from inside the vehicle.

Rush-Pruitt was arrested with deputies requesting charges of operating a motor vehicle without a license, possession of marijauan and possession of drug paraphernalia.
