MASON, Ohio -- NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver Aaron Fike was arrested in an amusement park parking lot after
authorities found a substance believed to be heroin in his sport
utility vehicle, police said.

Mason police said Fike, 24, and his fiancee, Cassandra Davidson,
were arrested Saturday afternoon on charges of possession of heroin
and drug paraphernalia. Bond hadn't been set and both remained in
Warren County Jail late Sunday.

Police officers at Kings Island amusement park in suburban
Cincinnati called Mason police after noticing suspicious activity
in Fike's Toyota Sequoia, Mason police said in a release.

Fike drives the No. 1 Toyota Tundra for Red Horse Racing in the
Craftsman Truck Series. He is eighth in points with 1487, 566
behind series leader Mike Skinner.

"We are working with NASCAR to obtain further information on
the incident and will release more information as the facts become
available to us," team owner and general manager Mike DeLoach said
in a statement.

Mason police are investigating, and drug analysis results from
the Miami Valley Regional Crime Laboratory are pending, police
said.
