JONESBORO, Ark. – If police stop you for having a suspended license and see you driving later on, you might get stopped again.
For this very reason, a Jonesboro man found himself accused of possession charges on Friday. At 3:57 p.m. on July 21, JPD Officer Michael Talley noticed a white Ford Crown Victoria going north on Melrose at the intersection of Cedar Heights. Talley reported knowing that the driver, Jeremy Eric Flemming, 32, of Jonesboro, had a suspended license. He confirmed the license was still suspended, the report said, and stopped him at the aforementioned intersection.
As he was informing Flemming of the reason for the stop, Talley noticed a pill bottle on the dash with a piece of plastic between the lid and the bottle with a liquid inside. He asked Flemming to step out of the car.
The incident report by Talley says Flemming consented to search his person and the vehicle. While searching, Talley said he found a green glass meth pipe with residue in it. It was in the glove box. A used needle was later found in the trunk inside of a case labeled tattoo equipment. The report said Flemming told Talley the pipe didn’t belong to him but the needle did.
He was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia (felony) and driving while on a suspended license. He was left in custody of Craighead County Detention Center.
