DUFF, TN (WLAF) – A slow moving vehicle failing to maintain its lane caught the attention of Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Preston Mullins. Mullins was driving on White Oak Rd around 7pm on Sat., April 30, when he came across a blue Ford Explorer traveling very slowly and straddling the fog line of the roadway.
Mullins saw a black Chevy truck driving behind the Explorer and was unable to properly pass the SUV. The Chevy truck pulled off the roadway and Mullins was then traveling directly behind the Explorer when it turned from White Oak Rd to Westbourne Rd. As Mullins passed Westbourne Rd, he noticed the blue Explorer turn and proceed in the opposite direction on White Oak Rd at a high rate of speed. Mullins turned around and conducted a traffic stop on the SUV, according to a report from the sheriff’s office.
When Mullins made contact with the driver, identified as Shonda Deshea Davis, she appeared to be nervous. Davis allegedly began fidgeting inside her Explorer and appeared as if she could not sit still. Davis denied taking any illegal substances, the report said.
Upon a search of the Explorer, Mullins allegedly found a small clear plastic bag containing residue of a clear rock like substance believed to be Methamphetamine and two butane torch lighters. The deputy asked when the last time she had smoked Methamphetamine; she allegedly replied three days ago. After failing the field sobriety tests, Mullins asked Davis again when she had last smoked Methamphetamine, and she replied the same as earlier.
Davis, 30, 876 Hickory Creek Lane, LaFollette was charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and violation implied consent law. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED 5/2/2022- 6AM)
