LAFOLLETTE, TN. (WLAF)- Driving around town with active warrants didn’t turn out well for Arnold Daugherty last week.
On June 27 LaFollette Police Department Patrolman Zack Daugherty was advised by Det. Sgt. Noah Riggs that Arnold Allen Daugherty was operating a blue Chevrolet Cavalier on Jacksboro Pike and was wanted on outstanding warrants. Officer Daugherty conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and confirmed Daugherty was wanted on four outstanding arrest warrants. At this point Arnold Daugherty was placed under arrest and Officer Daugherty learned the man’s driver’s license was suspended, the LPD report said.
In the front seat of the vehicle was April Brooke Bailey. During a search of the car, police allegedly found in the center console of the vehicle, a glass pipe with burned residue in the bulb as well as a crystal rock in the tube weighing .29 grams, believed to be Methamphetamine, the report said. He asked Arnold Daugherty and Bailey three times whom the substance and paraphernalia belonged to, to which both parties denied possession all three times. After he advised they were both being charged with the substance, Arnold Daugherty attempted to claim possession of the substances and paraphernalia. Arnold Daugherty allegedly continued stating “it’s not mine but I’ll take it.”
