Brush Truck Driver Charged With Meth Possession

A man charged Wednesday with driving under the influence and possession of methamphetamine by the Tennessee Highway Patrol after a traffic stop on Baileyton Road had a first appearance Friday in General Sessions Court.

Richard Lynn Greenwell, 37, of 1409 Daisy St., had a hearing date of Feb. 12 set. Greenwell was charged with DUI, felony possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Greenwell was also cited for speeding after being pulled over while driving a Ford brush truck owned by Wolf Tree service, Trooper Vince Mullins said in a report.

Greenwell was speeding and allegedly crossed the road center line three times. He “was slow to pull over and appeared impaired by drugs,” the report said.

Greenwell did poorly on field sobriety tests. A search of the truck turned up a small plastic bag containing about two grams of suspected methamphetamine and another plastic bag containing a smaller amount of suspected meth, the report said.

Also found in the truck was a torch-style lighter and a sunglasses case that held a glass pipe with white residue, a cut straw and “two implements to crush drugs,” the report said.

Bond Conditions

Is it a constitutional infringement to require me to do urine tests PRIOR to plea arraignment ie: innocent until proven guilty?

It is constitutional. It is a condition of your bond. Your other option is to stay in jail until your case is resolved.

2nd Offense

I was charged with a dui, failure to report an accident and leaving an accident scene. I scraped a parked car. No bodily injuries. Previous DWAI about 10 years ago.

While jail is not mandatory, 10 days is. If the judge agrees, you would be eligible for in home detention.

Oregon’s top prison doctor arrested for DUII

BEND, Ore. (AP) — The clinical director for the Oregon Department of Corrections is facing charges of driving under the influence.

Christopher Peter DiGiulio was arrested last month and arraigned Tuesday for investigation of driving under the influence of intoxicants and for refusing to take a breath test for alcohol, The Bend Bulletin reported.

Both charges are misdemeanors.

A related search warrant affidavit says DiGiulio admitted to the arresting officer that he smoked marijuana earlier in the day.

DiGiulio’s attorney, Bryan M. Donahue, says a decision on opting for alcohol diversion treatment remains open.

His next court date is scheduled for Feb. 16.

The North Korean defector who escaped after being shot had reportedly been in a drunk-driving accident

  • The North Korean defector who made a brazen escape under a hail of gunfire last year is suspected of being involved in a vehicle accident while under the influence of alcohol.
  • South Korean intelligence sources reportedly said he defected immediately after the accident.
  • A report on Tuesday citing South Korean intelligence officials said the man had disclosed that he was involved in a crime “that led to a death.”

The North Korean defector who brazenly made his way across the border to South Korea under a hail of gunfire in November is suspected of involvement in an accident while he was driving under the influence, the South Korean newspaper Dong-A Ilbo reported on Wednesday.

Citing a briefing from South Korea’s National Intelligence Service, the report says the defector, identified as 24-year-old Chung-sung Oh, had suggested to a friend that he would give a tour of Panmunjom in November.

Oh, who was previously reported to be a driver for the North Korean military, is believed to have hit a guardrail during the drive with his friend, the report said. After realizing what transpired, Oh is said to have begun his escape across the border.

Citing South Korean intelligence officials, the Ilbo reported on Tuesdaythat Oh had said he was involved in an incident “that led to a death.”

A reporter from Chosun Ilbo, another South Korean news organization, said he received a similar unconfirmed report in December that Oh was believed to have been involved in a vehicle accident involving another person and may have defected because he feared punishment.

Other South Korean officials have pushed back on the reports of Oh’s statement. If they are true, though, it could complicate the proceedings and exclude him from benefits given to North Korean defectors, according to Dong-A Ilbo. But because the government does not have an extradition treaty with North Korea, Oh does not appear to be at risk of being sent back.

Bam Margera was arrested this weekend after allegedly driving under the influence.

California Highway Patrol confirms to E! News that the former Jackass and Viva La Bam star was arrested around 8 a.m. Sunday morning in Los Angeles county.

While he was initially pulled over due to a cell phone violation, officers noticed signs of possible intoxication and conducted a standard field sobriety test.

Officers proceeded to arrest the pro skateboarder for suspected drunk driving. The 38-year-old posted $15,000 bail and was released Sunday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. local time.

E! News has reached out to Bam’s agent for comment.

“He’s with a friend out there and we’re trying to see if he wants to go to rehab or anything,” Bam’s brother Jess told Page Six on Monday. “We’re trying to help him from across the country.”

Just last month, Bam and his wife Nicole Boyd announced the birth of their son Phoenix Wolf on social media.

At the same time, fans previously learned that the former MTV star struggled with alcohol in years past.

“I took a five-year hiatus from skating because I had bone spurs, so instead I was making money by doing nightclub appearances, which basically was shooting photos and taking shots with the locals,” he shared with People. “So I was s—bag wasted every night, and eventually was like, ‘This has to stop.’ Once I woke up in my own puke and p–, I knew I had to cut it off.”

“I just reached a point where drinking got really old,” he added. “I just looked at the big picture, like, ‘What am I doing? I’m not doing anything, just sitting in a bar in Westchester cracking jokes with he locals.’ So I stopped.”
