Peyton Manning Is A Woman And Got Arrested In A Drug Bust

Cops ended Peyton Manning's alleged drug career on Sunday, just like the Seahawks ended Peyton Manning's alleged football career in Super Bowl 48.

The Manning who got arrested -- an 18-year-old female in Nashville, Tennessee -- isn't the same as the NFL quarterback who got steamrolled by Russell Wilson and the boys on Feb. 2. She was stopped on Sunday by police, who allegedly found two little baggies of cocaine that she tried to hide in a cup of Coca-Cola, WKRN reports.

Further investigation revealed that Manning and her alleged accomplice, 18-year-old Kenneth Sowards, were selling cocaine and marijuana to pay for bills and food, according to police.

Arresting officers told The Tennessean that they smelled marijuana in the car when they pulled the two over. Sowards allegedly let the officers search the vehicle, and they found the cocaine, a digital scale, marijuana and a pill crusher. Both of the suspect's phones reportedly had messages on them about using cocaine and selling weed, according to arrest warrants.

Manning was charged with possession of cocaine, pot and drug paraphernalia. She's in jail on a $20,000 bond. Sowards faces all those charges along with evidence tampering for allegedly throwing the coke in the Coke.

It's unclear whether Manning was named after the Tennessee college football legend.

Editor's Note: I'm a huge Seahawks fan, as has been noted on this site, so I apologize for the bad jokes.
