People may think of a drug such as methamphetamine and understand that this substance is dangerous and addictive. Thus, this drug is made illegal to possess in Indiana.

However, she did allegedly admit to pulling the sign up and tossing it down. She faces charges of criminal mischief, trespassing and, perhaps most seriously, battery.
