Mo-ped driver arrested for meth

A Bean Blossom man was arrested for possession of methamphetamine Oct. 30 after a Nashville police officer questioned whether he had the proper license to drive a mo-ped.

Jacob Williams, 29, of State Road 45, pulled into a driveway and parked in the 400 block of Helmsburg Road. He showed Officer Kyle Seward that he had the proper endorsement to drive the mo-ped, issued five days earlier. A check of his license by dispatch did not show it in the system, Seward’s report said.

Seward said he had seen Williams toss something on the ground next to the mo-ped. Seward picked up a plastic bag containing a clear, crystal-like substance. Williams told the officer that it was meth, and it was his, according to a probable-cause affidavit.

He was booked into the Brown County jail at 1:45 a.m. and released less than two hours later after posting $2,500 bond, according to jail records.

On Nov. 14, he was charged with possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony.
