47-year-old Kenny Way was charged with possession of methamphetamine, driving on revoked, meth for resale, disobedience to a traffic control device after he ran a red light after waiting 30 seconds on his motorcycle before doing so, and he was caught with drugs in the backpack he was carrying.
On November 8th, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy K. Potter observed Kenny Way running a red light while parked at the intersection of Tennessee 374 and Evans Road. Deputy Potter conducted a traffic stop at 1827 Evans Road. Kenny reportedly got off his motorcycle and put his backpack down on the ground.
During the investigation, the license plate came back to a Suzuki motorcycle even though the one Kenny was riding was a Harley Davidson. Deputy Potter had a police service dog, Sabre, sniff the backpack. Sabre then indicated there were narcotics by biting and pawing at the backpack. Per the affidavit, when Deputy Potter opened the bag, it contained a drug scale, numerous small zip-lock bags of meth and heroin, a drug pipe, a meth pipe, a spoon, needles, and two other zip-lock bags with unknown pills inside.
Kenny Way was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, driving on revoked, meth for resale, disobedience to a traffic control device. He pled guilty to possession of meth, and all other charges were dismissed. He was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail and must serve 30 days and pay a $750 fine before probation.
