MONROE, La. (KTVE/KARD) — A traffic complaint leads to the arrest of a Winnsboro man on Louisiana Highway 165.

Credit admitted that the pill was an ecstasy pill.

He was charged with Possession of a Controlled Narcotic and Impeding the Flow of Traffic. He was transported to the Ouachita Correctional Center.
