On Saturday, Adair County Sheriff Josh Brockman received a call of a suspicious vehicle on Bull Run Road, two miles east of Columbia.     

Brockman and Deputy Derek Padgett located the vehicle — a 2013 black Dodge Avenger — and initiated contact. The operator appeared under the influence during a roadside investigation, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.

A field sobriety test was conducted by Padgett, and as a result, Shawn Nuckols, 31, of Tompkinsville, was placed under arrest for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs. It was also found that he was operating on a suspended drivers license for three prior DUIs. 

Upon taking him into custody, pills and suspected methamphetamine were found concealed in his belt line during a search. 

Nuckols was lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail on charges of:

• possession of controlled substance, 1st degree, methamphetamine

• possession of a controlled substance, 3rd degree, pills unspecified

• possession of prescription controlled substance not in original container

• possession of drug paraphernalia

• operating a motor vehicle under influence of drugs, 4th offense

• operating on DUI suspended license

• no insurance

Padgett was assisted by Brockman.
