Dr. Locklear Faces Possession Of Cocaine Charges

Originally published: 2013-06-12 11:12:45

A well-known Greeneville physician was arrested Tuesday and charged with two felony counts of crack cocaine possession, agents of the Third Judicial District Drug Task Force (TJDDTF) said in reports.

Dr. Robert Wayne Locklear, 42, of 355 Dominique Lane, was formally charged with two counts of felony possession of a Schedule II drug and had a first General Sessions Court appearance this morning.

Locklear is free on $80,000 bond.

A series of events led to the arrest of Locklear, who has a private internal medicine practice. His office is at 895 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy.

On June 5, sheriff's deputies answered a domestic disturbance call at the Be Happy Apartments, 3425 Snapps Ferry Road.

TJDDTF was contacted "as drugs were alleged to be present in the apartment (in) a laundry basket in the bathroom." Crack cocaine was found in the laundry basket, a report by a Drug Task Force agent said.

On Tuesday, Greeneville police received a complaint from the clerk at the Comfort Inn, 1790 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy.

The clerk told officers that "a large amount of short-stay traffic" was taking place in a room registered to Locklear, "and that she was suspicious of drug activity," agents said in a report.

Locklear was placed under arrest in connection with the June 5 incident.

A search of Locklear turned up about 6.4 grams of crack cocaine in his pants pocket, a report said.

Locklear was for several years affiliated with Takoma Medical Associates before going into private practice in February 2012.

He has not been associated with Takoma Regional Hospital since that time, hospital spokesman Lyndon Gallimore said today, adding that the hospital was "saddened by the news."

A call to Locklear's office this morning seeking comment was not immediately returned.
