PINEVILLE, Ky. (AP)  — Authorities say a Kentucky woman gave her probation officer a dog urine sample during a drug screening.

Police in Pineville say 40-year-old Julie Miller was arrested Monday on a charge of tampering with physical evidence. She also was charged with a parole violation and trafficking in a controlled substance.

Police say Miller admitted she tried to use the dog urine as her own sample given to officers at the Bell County Probation and Parole Office during a regular probation visit. Miller pleaded guilty in November to a charge of first-degree possession of a controlled substance.
