Hogan was driving in the county on Sept. 29 when she was pulled over by Washington State Patrol Trooper Brian Luedtke, according to court documents.
The trooper reportedly noted a marijuana odor coming from the vehicle, and Hogan admitted having pot with her. The amount, which she turned over to Luedtke, was in excess of the legal limit, court documents said.
Hogan also told the trooper she had additional marijuana in the vehicle and allowed him to retrieve it, documents said. The total amount she allegedly had was 4.6 pounds.
