LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Georgia man was arrested on drug charges after being stopped on a Louisville highway.  

Police observed a car traveling north on I-65 at Gene Snyder. An arrest slip says Arnett Brewer, 78, crossed the center line numerous times. He was also changing lanes without using a turn signal when exiting to Fern Valley Road.

Officers pulled Brewer over and say he was extremely nervous. A K-9 searched the vehicle and led police to a bag with over 1,000 grams of heroin hidden behind the door panel.

Brewer is being charged with careless driving and trafficking a controlled substance.
