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.
