TRIGG COUNTY, KY (7/18/12) – Tuesday afternoon Cadiz Police received a report of a reckless driver who was driving on Cerulean Road, having blown out two tires and driving on the metal rims.
Officer Scott Brown was able to follow a trail of rubber tire remnants from Cerulean Road approximately a half-mile to West End Street. Officer Brown located the vehicle in the driveway of 285 West End Street. According to the police report, 21-year-old Jamiston Stewart was found in driver's seat of the vehicle and appeared intoxicated based on his speech and smell.
Sgt. Chad Grace administered a field sobriety test, which the subject failed. He refused any other tests. He was arrested by Sgt. Grace. A search of the vehicle by Officer Brown yielded a small baggie of a substance that field-tested positive for marijuana. A 12-guage shotgun was observed in plain view in the backseat floorboard by Brown.
Stewart allegedly had driven the vehicle into the driveway in such a manner that he drove over a flower pot and metal decorative wheel near the house at 285 West End Street.
An investigation revealed that Steward was convicted of multiple felony charges in Trigg County in March 2011 and sentenced to probation. Steward saw his probation revoked in September 2011 and was sentenced to two years in prison. Because of his high level of intoxication, Sgt. Grace took Stewart to Trigg County Hospital to get medically cleared before being lodged in jail. At the hospital, Steward reportedly became belligerent and threatened to kill the hospital staff. He is said to have continued to yell at the officer and hospital staff.
Stewart is charged with DUI-2nd offense, possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, 2nd degree terroristic threatening, 3rd degree criminal mischief, menacing and 2nd degree disorderly conduct. He was lodged in the Christian County Jail.
