Suspicious Activity Leads To Drug, Other Charges

Suspicious activity in a car Wednesday resulted in multiple charges being filed against the driver, Sgt. David Beverly said in a report.

Jason A. Wilburn, 34, of 2905 Chuckey Pike, was charged with driving under the influence, violation of the implied consent law, possession of a Schedule III drug, driving on a revoked license and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Wilburn and another man were sitting in a car parked at Forest Park in Greeneville. Deputies were approached by another man who reported two men arguing in the car who appeared to be "shooting up," the report said.

As deputies drove up to the car, it pulled out from its parking spot and went in the direction of Monument Hill. The car was "almost in the other lane of the roadway" as it pulled on to Linden Avenue, "turning very wide to the right and then all the way into the wrong lane," the report said.

As the car turned into an alley behind an apartment building, the driver looked at deputies but did not stop, the report said.

The car stopped behind a house in the 300 block of Carson Street. Wilburn was placed in handcuffs "due to the way he was acting," the report said.

"I noticed that his speech was slurred and he was sweating heavily and also had droopy eyelids (and) appeared to be under the influence of narcotics," the report said.

When Wilburn got out of the car and stood up, a 3-1/2 inch pocket knife with the blade locked open fell on the ground, the report said.

A lump felt in one of Wilburn's socks during a patdown held a cigarette wrapper with a Suboxone strip inside it, the report said.

A records check showed Wilburn's driver license was revoked. A syringe was found under clothing in the back seat of the car, the report said.

Wilburn allegedly refused to do any field sobriety tests or have blood drawn, the report said.

Bond was set at $5,000.
