On Sunday, deputies pulled over the vehicle Lindley was in on Battleground Drive in Iuka for not displaying a tag, according to Daugherty. Upon approaching the vehicle, deputies noticed "several open containers of alcohol throughout the vehicle and learned that both, the driver and passenger, had been drinking."
