Multiple Charges — Christian De’Shawn Ewell, 22, of Moscow, TN, was arrested on charges of possession of schedule I with intent, drug paraphernalia, possession of a stolen firearm, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony during an April 22 traffic stop near McKenzie.
Deputy Dakota Meier reported he pulled over a vehicle driven by Ewell after observing the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed at Highway 22 and Vernon Thomas Road. While speaking with Ewell, Meier detected the odor of marijuana, and when Meier advised him he was going to search the vehicle, Ewell said there was a gun in the back seat. During his search of the vehicle, Meier found an unloaded AR pistol, a magazine with 43 rounds, a loaded Glock 23 pistol, an extended magazine with 30 rounds, 13 blue and green pills, four bottles of alcohol, and a scale used to weigh narcotics. A computer check showed that the Glock pistol was stolen out of Fayette County.

Deputy Dakota Meier reported he pulled over a vehicle driven by Pusey on Highway 70 due to a headlight not working. A computer check revealed Pusey had an active warrant out of Benton County. A towing service was called to tow Pusey’s vehicle, and while conducting an inventory of the vehicle, a deputy found two clear baggies containing two grams of a substance that field-tested positive for meth and a clear glass pipe.

A computer check showed that Eaton had never been issued a driver’s license in the state of Tennessee. Eaton gave Walker permission to search his person but not the vehicle. Walker ran his K-9 dog around the vehicle, and the dog indicated the presence of illegal substances. While searching the vehicle, Walker found a glass pipe and a plastic container with 0.6 grams of a substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
