One of them is a very famous NFL quarterback and the league's only five-time MVP. The other is an 18-year-old Tennessee woman who was arrested in a drug bust near a local church.

Both are named Peyton Manning.

Police say they pulled over Manning, 18, and her friend because their high beams were on in traffic, reports WKRN-TV. After noticing an odor of marijuana, police searched the car and found two plastic baggies with a white powdery substance in the center console and the substance field tested positive for cocaine. According to the affidavit, 44 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and a pill crusher were also found.

Manning and her friend were both arrested and face numerous drug charges, including a felony charge for possessing drugs in a drug-free zone, since the incident happened within 1,000 feet of a church.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
