Stumbling Man Faces Multiple Charges

A man found stumbling along John Bragg Highway on Sept. 2 was charged with multiple offenses.

After receiving calls about an apparently intoxicated man walking on roads in the area of Old Murfreesboro Road and John Bragg Highway, Woodbury Patrolman John Fesmire found Larry Ricky Blair, Jr., 1126 Hollis Creek Rd., Woodbury, stumbling along John Bragg Hwy., creating a hazard for his own safety and the safety of others.

After Blair consented to a consensual search, Patrolman Fesmire found Blair to be in possession of several pills identified as MS Contin, a Schedule II narcotic. They were found in a plastic wrapper concealed in a sock.

Blair was also found to possess a metal spoon and three cut straws, items commonly used to ingest narcotics.

He was charged with simple possession of Schedule II drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication.

Total bond was set at $5,100. Initial court date is Oct. 25.
