Trucker Held After Stop At I-81 Scale Complex

A truck driver from Connecticut was charged Saturday with driving under the influence, simple possession of a Schedule VI drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia after pulling into the Greene County Scale Complex off Interstate 81, Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers reported.

Richard S. Paley, 53, of Portland, Conn., drove to a static scale and "failed to go to [the] building for inspection," a report said.

Paley "had difficulty entering the inspection area," the report said.

Paley "had dry mouth and light-sensitive eyes" and admitted to taking amphetamines, the report said.

He failed field sobriety tests. Troopers smelled marijuana in the truck cab and found two partially-smoked cigarettes suspected to contain marijuana in a cigarette pack, the report said.

A corner of a plastic bag with "crystal" residue was also found in the cigarette pack, the report said.

Paley was also charged with violation of the implied consent law for refusing to have blood drawn and violation of duty status for allegedly driving more than 11 hours without a break.

Bond was set at $4,500. He was scheduled to appear Monday in General Sessions Court.
