Early Thursday morning Brock Lawson, 23, of Limestone, Tenn., was found asleep in the passenger seat of his vehicle outside the Taco Bell on North Eastman Road. Kingsport police say Lawson, “had food thrown about his lap and his face had sour cream smeared all over it.”
The responding officer awakened Lawson and had him step from the vehicle. Police say he was lethargic and had difficulty following commands, prompting his arrest for public intoxication. A search resulted in nearly 1.8 ounces of marijuana in the pocket of his pants.
While being booked into jail, Lawson “continually grabbed his genitals and buttocks.” A cavity search was conducted, locating $105 in cash. Lawson allegedly said he was hiding the money because he didn’t want police to take it.
On Feb. 18, Lawson was arrested at Wendy’s, 10154 Airport Parkway, possessing four baggies of marijuana. He charged with driving under the influence, second offense, and possession of Schedule VI narcotics for resale.
His wife, Jessica Lawson, 29, was also arrested at Wendy’s. Police say she was hiding in her bra $890 in cash, two baggies of marijuana, and a bottle of Xanax.
