Failure to Stop and Possession

Stuart Morrison,  Staff Writer

On the evening of Jan. 18, Officer Shepherd notified OfficerNelson of a red Honda Accord on Campus Loop Road that failed to stop at a stop sign. Officer Nelson initiated a traffic stop on a red, 2001 Honda Accord and spoke with the driver.

While speaking to the driver, the officer noticed the odor of marijuana. Sgt. Dicks arrived as backup, and Officer Nelson asked the driver to step out of the vehicle and administered a field sobriety test, which the driver failed. Sgt. Dicks asked the driver if there was any marijuana in the vehicle, and the driver admitted, when asked where, the driver stated that it was in the arm rest.

Sgt. Dicks found a grinder with marijuana inside, an empty pill bottle, a glass pipe and a homemade device that the driver indicated was for smoking marijuana.

The driver was arrested for failure to stop at a stop sign and for possession and transported to Cobb Adult Detention Center.
