WAUKESHA COUNTY -- A driver faces multiple charges after deputies found THC gummy candies in their car during a traffic stop for an OWI.

On Easter Sunday, Waukesha County deputies received a report about a drunk driver on I-94. The car was located making multiple lane changes and abruptly exiting the freeway. 

Deputies pulled the car over and the driver admitted to using a phone while driving. The deputies noticed their eyes were glassy and bloodshot -- and they conducted a sobriety test.

The driver blew a 0.18 in a breath test. 

Deputies then searched the car where the THC gummy candies were found -- as well as a large variety of medicines and paraphernalia. 

The driver was turned over to the Waukesha County Jail for drug charges and a first offense OWI.
