More >]]> A Mauston woman has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. According to the criminal complaint, on July 21, state troopers initiated a traffic stop on I-90 in the Town of Lemonweir for excessive speed. They made contact with the driver, 33-year-old Amanda Coleman, and informed her of the reason for the stop. While one trooper was running Coleman’s driving status, the other was talking to Coleman. He saw several items of drug paraphernalia in the center console when Coleman opened it. Coleman became argumentative when she was ordered place her hands on the ceiling and not move. She was detained, and a search of the vehicle led to the troopers finding drug paraphernalia and a needle. The complaint stated for officer safety, one trooper asked Coleman if there were any more needles in the vehicle. She said no, but that there was some meth. The trooper found a gem case inside the driver’s side cubby and it was packed filled with shards of what looked like broken glass, which tested positive for meth. Coleman was transported to the Juneau County Jail. During the transport, she was belligerent and rude and at the jail, she was uncooperative. Coleman refused to go through the booking process, and refused to complete intake screening. Court records show Coleman has a $2,500 signature bond and she is not to use, possess, or consume any controlled substances without a valid prescription. An initial appearance for her has been scheduled for August 10.
