Habitual Idiot Tasered and Arrested

January 22, 2013: Johnson City Police Department responded to the area of Indian Ridge Road after a concerned citizen called 911 and complained of a possible drunk driver in the area. A vehicle fitting the description of the one given by the caller was located at Indian Ridge Rd - Fairridge Rd. An attempt to stop the vehicle was unsuccessful after the driver turned his lights off and evaded officers' efforts to pull him over.

An investigation into the incident revealed the driver to be Cecil D. Carver, feral white male, 41 yoa, of 205 Fairridge Rd, Johnson City. A warrant for Felony Evading and Driving on a Revoked License, 10th offense, was obtained for Mr. Carver's arrest and served upon him at his residence. During the service attempt, Mr. Carver actively resisted arrest and was Tasered before being taken into custody.

Mr. Carver was transported to the Washington County Detention Center where he is being held in lieu of a $12,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on 01/22/13 at 1330 hours to be arraigned.

One resident had this to say about Mr. Carver:

I don't like the idea of putting a person like this in jail,he's no threat of crime other than killing some one while drunk driving. If he's in jail taking up space it's costing us money. I think a good thing to do with a person is brake all his fingers one at a time so then he can't hold the steering wheel or a can of beer! Then if he does it again either cut fingers off or break his wrist!
