Lexi Royse is facing multiple charges from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office after being arrested for marijuana possession on Friday in Conroe, located about 40 miles north of Houston.

Sheriff’s deputies attempted to pull over Royse in a school zone for a traffic violation, and she finally stopped her vehicle in the school drop-off line.
