A Missouri woman on probation from an I-90 traffic stop involving pot-infused candy has admitted to violating her probation by being arrested for DUI.​

Elizabeth Diehl, 32, appeared in 22nd Judicial District Court last Thursday on a revocation hearing and admitted to violating her probation by getting arrested in Gallatin County for DUI. Diehl also told Judge Matt Wald she had marijuana with her that night, but that Gallatin County officials had dismissed the charge under the terms of a plea agreement. The DUI was also amended to criminal endangerment.​

At a prior court hearing, prosecutors said Diehl had tested positive for cocaine and marijuana during the Gallatin County stop.​

Specifically, Diehl was arrested last month on a second offense DUI and drug possession, as well as having tested positive for cocaine and marijuana. Both are violations of her 2018 Stillwater County probation.​

Sentencing will take place in March.​

Diehl was placed on probation in March 2018 after pleading guilty to one felony count of dangerous drugs. In addition to being ordered to abide by 33-court imposed conditions, Diehl was given a 2-year deferred sentence. ​

That case stemmed from a traffic stop made based on a report of a SUV with out-of-state license plates that was swerving all over I-90. Field sobriety tests determined that Diehl was not impaired, but the deputy could smell marijuana. Diehl consented to a search of her vehicle, where a THC infused caramel apple sucker containing 13.20 milligrams of cannabinoid was found, according to court documents. ​

Also found was more than 60 grams marijuana-infused candy, along with a blue glass smoking pipe with residue, a grinder and a container with marijuana in it, according to court documents.​
