Batavia police pretty much threw the book at a young woman charged with driving with open liquor and cannabis but without a valid driver's license.
Police arrested Brittany C. Hughes, 21, of Batavia on charges of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended registration, driving while license suspended, operating a vehicle with an expired registration sticker, illegal transportation of alcohol, operating an uninsured vehicle, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of cannabis, according to a report filed at 9:08 p.m. Sept. 6 in the 100 block of South Raddant Road.
According to reports, a license-plate inquiry revealed that Hughes was driving with a suspended license.
An inventory search of the vehicle found a wine bottle, two multicolored glass smoking pipes with burnt residue and a wrapper containing a green leafy substance field tested positive for cannabis.
Hughes has a court date of Oct. 8.
