LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - One Laurel County woman is facing multiple charges following a traffic stop that stemmed from a cracked windshield.

On Tuesday night, London Police stopped a car on North Main Street following complaints about a car driving in what other drivers called a reckless manner.
