An intoxicated driver is facing multiple charges after officers discover more than 8.5 pounds of suspected marijuana in the trunk of his car.
In the early morning hours of November 17, 2015, Morristown Police Department officers responded to what appeared to be an under-the-influence driver on West Andrew Johnson Hwy.
