LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – LaFollette Police Officer Cory Lawson was traveling eastbound on Jacksboro Pike on Tuesday evening when he noticed a green 1999 Subaru Forester with no driver’s side taillight and expired tags. Lawson stopped the vehicle at the former IGA parking lot.

When Lawson spoke with the driver of the SUV, identified as Michael Andrew Foust, he allegedly reported he had just recently purchased the Subaru and that he didn’t have registration papers or insurance on the vehicle. He was only able to provide Lawson with an ID.

Lawson ran Foust’s information through dispatch and learned that his license was revoked for DUI with two priors. When he researched the license plate information, LPD Dispatch advised the plate came back to a black Chevrolet. Lawson asked Foust and his passenger to step out of the CUV, and they complied, according to a report from the LaFollette Police Department.

Lawson deployed K-9 Officer Morris for a free air sniff of the vehicle. K-9 Morris alerted on the driver’s side of the SUV, K-9 Morris was then sent inside the vehicle and alerted to the middle area of the vehicle. A search of the SUV revealed a reflective Ace of Spades card with powder like residue on it. Also allegedly found was a Buprenorphine and Naloxone sublingual film wrapper containing an orange piece of film substance believed to be Suboxone.

Foust, 132 Moonbow Drive, LaFollette was charged with violation registration law, violation light law, violation of TN financial law, driving while revoked/suspended 3rd and possession of schedule III controlled substance. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/17/2023-6AM)

  1. YAY! Tired of these no-driver’s license people out there. They just don’t care that if they are involved in an accident and have no insurance, it falls to the other driver who does…guess what their rates are likely to go up. 3 offenses are crazy. Make him pay big because he evidently will offend again and again.
    Enough is enough and too much is nasty.
