CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

W’burg man arrested for drugs, weapon

A Williamsburg man was arrested Friday after a deputy found pills and a gun during a traffic stop, according to Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell.

Anthony S. McCullah, 45, was stopped about 10:30 p.m. by Deputy Kirk Mays. The traffic stop was made after Mays saw McCullah drive off the road several times while travelling on Interstate 75, Harrell said. Mays also reported McCullah failed to signal at an off ramp and that his rear license plate wasn’t illuminated.

After the traffic stop, Mays noted McCullah appeared to be under the influence. He conducted field sobriety tests, which McCullah could not complete.

McCullah was arrested for driving under the influence. When asked if he had anything illegal, McCullah said he didn’t. A subsequent search revealed an unmarked pill bottle containing 15 pills, possibly Xanax, in McCullah’s right front pocket. In his left front pants pocket were four pills believed to be hydrocodone.

Between the driver’s seat and center console, Mays found a pistol.

McCullah was charged with first-, second- and third-degree possession of a controlled substance,  possession of a controlled substance not in its original container, carrying a concealed deadly weapon, reckless driving, failure/improper signal, rear license plate not illuminated and DUI.

Mays was assisted at the scene by Lt. Millard Root and Patrolman Mike Bischop of the Corbin Police Department.

London father arrested

A London man was intoxicated Saturday as he walked along the road with his 4-year-old son, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Michael Patterson, 30, appeared to be under the influence when he was observed about 10 p.m. along U.S. 25 by Deputy Robbie Grimes.

Grimes arrested Patterson and charged him with public intoxication – controlled substances, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a minor.

Patterson carried suspected marijuana and two glass pipes.

Patterson was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center. His son was released to his sister through social services.
