Wrong Tag Gets Man Tagged With DOSL

A Dowelltown man faces charges in three counties following his Oct. 7 arrest by Cannon County Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Moss.

The deputy was patrolling on John Bragg Hwy. at approximately 10:15 p.m. that day when he observed a white Mercury van abruptly change lanes of travel. He ran the tag on the vehicle and it returned as registered to a red Mustang. Deputy Moss stopped the vehicle for misuse of registration.

The vehicle was being driven by Roy Frazier, 234 Toad Road, Dowelltown. A check of Frazier’s license showed it to be suspended. A check for warrants found that he had two for his arrest in Wilson County and one in DeKalb County.

Frazier was asked to step out of the vehicle and when he did Deputy Moss observed an open 24-ounce can of Coors Light near the driver’s seat.

Frazier was taken into custody and issued release citations for Driving on a Suspended License, Open Container, Registration Violation and Violation of the Financial Responsibility law.

He was then transported to the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department where he was turned over to Booking to await transport to the Wilson County Jail.

Frazier is scheduled to make his first appearance in Cannon County General Sessions Court on Nov. 1.
