28-year-old Nakietha Gallion was jailed on May 12th after an anonymous call of a man “pooping in the parking lot” of Circle K on Lafayette Road. When police approached Gallion, he was across the street from the gas station. He started walking away from the officers while removing all of his articles of clothing. Mr. Gallion then grabbed something from his wallet, put it in his mouth, and started chewing on it. He was told to stop walking and stand by his jacket, at which point he reached into his waistband and said, “Or what?”
Police told Gallion to put his hands behind his back, but he refused and was taken to the ground. While on the ground, officers commanded him to spit out what he was chewing on, but he refused and kicked an officer multiple times. He was taken into custody, and police were able to retrieve the item he was chewing on. It was a small, clear, plastic baggie containing a white powder that tested positive for cocaine. Gallion was transported to Tennova to be observed for a possible overdose. The baggie of cocaine was approximately .5 grams.
