MIAMI COUNTY, OH (FOX19 NOW) -
New video released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows the January 25 traffic stop and arrest of Lisa Wells.
Wells, a WLW radio personality and local defense attorney, faces drug possession and OVI charges after being stopped by an Ohio State Highway Trooper in Miami County, OH, according to court documents.
"I'm sorry?," said the trooper, who pulled Wells over.
"I'm a criminal defense attorney," Wells says.
Wells, 37, was stopped driving on Interstate 75, near Mile Post 84, by the Piqua Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol after they received a call of a vehicle driving recklessly, according to an incident report.
According to a police incident report, Wells advised that she was weaving in her lane because she was trying to make it to mile marker 83 because she was almost out of gas.
After the traffic stop was initiated, several pills were observed on the car's seat when she exited the vehicle, police said.
The video shows the trooper trying to ask Wells about pills that were found in the vehicle.
"Okay ma'am, these are the pills I'm talking about. That pill right there on top, I can identify ma'am as Adderall, okay?," the trooper said.
"Adderall?," Wells asked.
"Yes Ma'am," the trooper responded.
"Ma'am, I will ask you though, do you have a prescription for this?," he asks.
"I do not wish to make any more statements," Wells responded.
Wells was asked to submit a field test, but said no. She was subsequently arrested for OVI and the prescription pills.
In addition to the three pills found on the seat, police found oxycodone in the drivers door panel and a large bag of assorted pills in her purse that contained two oxycodone, 22 alprazolam and seven amphetamine and dextroamphetamine.
Wells, of West Chester, OH, faces four counts of drug possession, one count of first-degree misdemeanor drug possession, operating a vehicle while impaired and failure to drive in marked lanes.
Wells has been been a regular guest and legal analyst on WLW since 2011, according to her bio on 700wlw.com. She's also criminal defense attorney with law offices in Covington, KY, and West Chester, according to her law website.
Wells is next scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Miami County Municipal Court in Troy, Ohio, on March 3.
