Moore, 19, told deputies he had been "double-texting" since he was 15 years old.
Deputies also arrested passenger Dartavious Moore after finding an ounce of marijuana in his underwear, sheriff’s spokeswoman Lori Myles told the Press-Register newspaper.
Two women and a 3-year-old were in the backseat.
Dandre Moore was charged with illegal possession of the Xanax and possession of a controlled substance. Dartavious Moore was charged with possessing marijuana, Mobile TV station WAFF reported.
Both men live in Philadelphia, Miss., according to the Press-Register.
