Around 8 p.m. Saturday, authorities said a dark SUV was spotted going 92 mph in the southbound lanes.

The vehicle was pulled over by an Indiana State Police Trooper. While the trooper was speaking with the driver, 40-year-old Jerome Middlebrooks, the trooper said he could smell the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

Both men are from Pontiac, Michigan.
