In news that will surely bring about a million misleading headlines, an 18-year-old woman named Peyton Manning was arrested on drug charges in Nashville over the weekend.

Manning and a non-famous named friend were pulled over by officers who smelled marijuana coming from their car and the police later found bags with cocaine residue in them as well.

It seems as though someone whose parent named them after the most famous quarterback in the world should be allowed to self-medicate, after likely being forced to have the same conversation with every single person they meet. That has to be rough.
