1 facing several drug charges after falling asleep in parking lot

When a person begins to feel fatigued or drowsy while driving a motor vehicle, he or she may choose to pull over and find a spot to rest. However, should others find a person asleep behind the wheel of a car in a parking lot, they may deem the act suspicious and choose to notify authorities. A 30-year-old man is reportedly facing numerous drug charges after allegedly falling asleep in his vehicle in the parking lot of a movie theater in Tennessee.

Law enforcement agents assert the incident took place after they received reports of a possibly intoxicated man sitting in a car in a local parking lot. Upon arriving at the location, police claim to have found the man asleep behind the wheel. They also claim to have spotted drug paraphernalia and a knife sitting in his lap, and a search of his vehicle was initiated.

2 face multiple drug charges after search of vehicle in Tennessee

Law enforcement agents may deploy a variety of tactics in an effort to reduce the flow of drug activity. Information that is gathered during an investigation could lead police to execute a warrant to search a vehicle or home, and those who are subjected to a similar incident might not know how best to handle the situation. A recent investigation in Tennessee has left two individuals facing multiple drug charges.

The incident reportedly began when undercover officers were allegedly able to secure a controlled purchase of narcotics from the two individuals. Soon thereafter, police located the vehicle they were driving and initiated a traffic stop. A subsequent search of the vehicle allegedly unearthed the presence of just over 60 grams of methamphetamine, along with several grams of heroin and multiple pills.

Stop in traffic leads to drunk driving charges or 1 in Tennessee

When authorities witness an action they deem to be suspicious in nature, they may choose to further investigate the matter. Those who are involved in traffic stops that take place under similar circumstances may be unaware of their legal rights, and they might be uncertain how best to handle the situation. A 50-year-old man has been arrested and accused of drunk driving after allegedly attempting to maneuver past a stoppage in traffic in Tennessee.

The incident reportedly took place on a recent Sunday after a tree fell onto a nearby road. While awaiting the removal of the tree, an officer responded to the scene to direct traffic. During this period, the officer claims to have witnessed a driver attempting to navigate around the tree, and asserts that the individual almost struck another vehicle in the process.

Police pursuit leads to drug charges for 2 in Tennessee

Although being involved in a traffic stop can be stressful and intimidating, attempting to flee from authorities is never advisable. A similar decision could create an unfortunate situation and may only increase the severity of the charges one faces. Two individuals have been arrested and each is facing multiple drug charges after allegedly leading police on a short pursuit in Tennessee.

The incident reportedly began when authorities attempted to initiate a traffic stop for unspecified reasons. Upon turning on lights and sirens, they claim the vehicle began to flee, allegedly running through several red lights in the process. Authorities assert that the vehicle eventually drifted into the wrong lane of traffic before turning onto a nearby road and crashing.

Collision leads to drunk driving charges for 1 in Tennessee

A conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol carries serious penalties, even if it is a first offense. Without the necessary legal experience, those who face allegations of drunk driving may be unaware of their legal rights and how best to approach the situation. A woman could be working with an attorney after she was charged with drunk driving following a recent collision in Tennessee.

According to law enforcement agents, the accident took place at around 11:20 a.m. on a recent Monday. Police assert that a vehicle had come to a halt at a stop sign when it was suddenly rear-ended by a car. The driver of the car was taken to a hospital for a blood draw soon thereafter, and she was subsequently charged with DUI.

Single-car accident leads to drunk driving and weapons charges

When a single-vehicle accident takes place, law enforcement agents may be tasked with determining the cause of the incident. Although a crash can leave a person shaken up and unsteady, trouble with balance and speech could lead authorities to suspect the possible presence of impairment. Two individuals are facing multiple charges following a recent suspected drunk driving accident in Tennessee.

Law enforcement agents have advised that the incident took place on a recent Tuesday when a driver lost control of her vehicle and cross into the median. Her vehicle then proceeded to veer back across the lanes of traffic before rolling over several times and coming to a rest just off the interstate. Upon approaching the vehicle and checking on the driver, police claim she appeared to be intoxicated.

Lack of probable cause leads to dismissal of drug charges

When it comes to a routine traffic stop, every individual has rights that cannot be violated in the process. For instance, without a search warrant, authorities must have reasonable cause to suspect the presence of unlawful activity before the search of a vehicle can be performed. A court has recently vacated a conviction and dismissed drug charges against a Tennessee man after ruling that a search of his vehicle was initiated without probable cause.

According to reports, the initial incident took place in Nov. 2012 during a routine traffic stop. During the stop, police reportedly enlisted the services of a K-9 unit to perform an open air search for reasons that remain unclear. Officers claimed that during this process, the K-9 unit exhibited a change in body language, which they reportedly took as an indication that there were drugs within the vehicle.

Man accused of successive drunk driving offenses within 2 days

A man is reportedly facing multiple charges after he was recently arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol twice within two days in Tennessee. With each successive offense, the potential penalties for a conviction for drunk driving may increase significantly. Those who stand accused of similar charges could find it beneficial to prepare for what comes next by speaking with a defense attorney as soon as possible.

Authorities claim the initial incident took place on a recent Tuesday night when they received reports of a single-vehicle accident. They assert that a man had crashed his van into a utility pole, and, upon arriving at the scene, they found him leaning over in a nearby yard. After allegedly admitting to consuming alcohol prior to driving, he was taken to a hospital for a blood test and was subsequently placed under arrest on suspicion of drunk driving.

2 facing drug charges after incident in parking lot in Tennessee

Many stores have a high volume of traffic come in and go out of their parking lots every day. However, should a person linger in a parking lot for an extended period, store owners or employees might consider his or her actions suspicious and wish to have the matter further investigated. Two individuals are facing drug charges after they were allegedly caught using illegal narcotics in the parking lot of a store in Tennessee.

Authorities say they received reports of suspicious behavior from the manager of a local store. The manager claims that two individuals had been sitting in their car in the parking lot for an extended period and warned police of the possible presence of drug activity. After arriving at the store, law enforcement agents assert the driver exited the vehicle to speak with them.
