29-year-old Matthew Ortiz, who has religiously shared almost every social media post from Scoop: Nashville & Clarksville Today for years, is free on a $40,000 bond after being booked on an outstanding warrant from 2018, charging him with felony drug possession of marijuana.
The warrant, which was signed on December 11th, 2018, states that on May 15th, 2018, Officer Seth Paugh of the Clarksville Police Department conducted a traffic stop on a Nissan Versa driven by Ortiz, with Nikki Reeves in the passenger seat. Ortiz initially denied a consent search, then stated there was marijuana in the vehicle after the officer mentioned bringing a K-9 to the scene. During a search, a baggie containing a felony amount of marijuana was located under the driver’s seat along with two glass pipes and a digital scale.
