NASHVILLE – A check on the welfare of a person passed out at the wheel resulted in the arrest of a Lockesburg man early Saturday morning.
According to statements made by a representative of the Nashville Police Department, Officer Casey Parker noticed a small pickup truck stopped in North Main Street around 8 a.m. Saturday, and approached the vehicle to see that everybody in the vehicle was alright. Upon coming close to the vehicle, it is reported that Parker found Clifton Lee Roberts, 36, slumped in the driver’s seat with his foot on the brake. Parker reported that the vehicle was in reverse, but had stalled out.
Roberts is stated to have awoken when Parker called out to him, but was in a very confused state. Parker allegedly assisted Roberts in exiting the vehicle, where a subsequent search of Roberts’s person reportedly turned up three small, clear bags containing what is suspected to be methamphetamine.
Roberts was subsequently booked into the Howard County jail on a charge of possession of a controlled substance. No bond information was available for him as of press time.
