He was found to be in possession of approximately 7 grams of a white powdery substance, which field tested positive for cocaine. Hailey was charged with possession with intent to distribute a schedule I or II controlled substance,. Because there was a juvenile in the vehicle with Hailey, he was also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was released on the same day on a $1,000 bond.
