SUGARLOAF KEY, Fla. (AP) — A 23-year-old woman told a sheriff's deputy she had drugs in her car for the back pain she suffers from being an adult dancer.

Monroe County Sheriff's Sgt. Ken Fricke spotted partially clad Kayla Gregg passed out behind the wheel of her vehicle in Sugarloaf Key on Monday. He knocked on the window and asked to see her identification. That's when he saw what appeared to be bags of what appeared to be drugs in the woman's purse. One bag tested positive for cocaine and she was arrested.

Deputies found other drugs in the car, including oxycodone, morphine and a smoking pipe.

She remained in jail on Tuesday, facing multiple drug charges. Jail records don't indicate whether she's hired an attorney.
