A popular Utah children’s entertainer has been arrested in Nevada on suspicion of possessing and importing marijuana. The Deseret News reports that police pulled over Shirley Bybee of Springville, Utah, after she allegedly failed to stop for a red light in Elko. Police say her car was impounded after officers determined she was driving under the influence, and a search turned up small bags of marijuana in the front seat and two bags containing about 21.7 pounds of marijuana in the trunk. Bybee works as a bird performer for two Utah entertainment companies, Mad Science and Scales & Tails Utah.
