On Feb. 13, Bynum was pulled over on I-80 by a Utah Highway Patrol trooper for following another vehicle too closely, according to charging documents. A drug sniffing K-9 was used to check the car and "100 packages of marijuana weighing approximately one pound each were found in the vehicle," the charges state.
White told the trooper they were "taking the marijuana to Boston to sell it and she wanted to make a business out of selling marijuana," according to court documents.
An initial court hearing is set for May 7.
