23-year-old National Guard Soldier Nathaniel Gann was erratically driving a red Ford Mustang late Friday night on Providence Blvd. When officers arrived on the street, they observed the Mustang traveling at only 15 mph and swerving onto sidewalks, and barely missing utility poles. Once the vehicle was stopped, Gann was noted to be extremely intoxicated and could barely stand when he exited the car. He admitted to drinking at Hooters prior to driving. There was a handgun in the backseat, which had been reported stolen, and seven open beer cans. A search of the trunk revealed nine more open beer cans and a shotgun. Lastly, Gann’s license was revoked from a prior DUI in 2021. Gann proudly stated he was a member of C troop, 1st quad, of the 278th ACR of the Tennessee Army National Guard.
On June 12, 2020, CPD Officer Dejesus initiated a traffic stop on 25-year-old Elijah McCoin and located multiple vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana. McCoin then consented to let agents search the bedroom of his home, which was nearby, which also revealed a large quantity of marijuana — and they let him walk away at that time. It would be over a year later, in July of 2021, before a warrant for the crime was signed. McCoin was picked up on that outstanding warrant this week and immediately released on a $5,000 bond, charged with possession of between 1/2 ounce and 10 pounds of marijuana.
