Clarksville police responded to a suspicious activity call on August 9th near the Waffle House parking lot in downtown Clarksville. Officers arrived to find several people, a car, and a U-Haul truck. 33-year-old Robert Griffith, along with 36-year-old Heather Ramey, were both placing bags into a Hyundai sedan with plates that belonged to a Texas truck. The driver of the Hyundai, 36-year-old Bobbi Nicholson, and her passenger, 31-year-old Megan Garcia, were unable to explain the improper registration. In plain view, officers say they found cocaine in a small bag inside the car. An in-depth search revealed Fentanyl, heroin, a meth pipe, marijuana, and four snort straws.
33-year-old Rishawn Crump, who had his wife arrested earlier this month claiming he was in fear of her after she sliced his shoe with a knife and refused to bail her out of jail, has now been jailed twice in 72 hours and remains in jail in lieu of a $5,000 bond. His recent antics include smashing out the front glass of a car dealership after being denied a test drive, and being high on alcohol, marijuana, mushrooms, and crack cocaine, when he called police believing he had been robbed.
Officers say 33-year-old James Anthony Jackson was driving on N. Riverside Drive just after 3 a.m. Sunday with no headlights on. As the officer attempted a traffic stop, the black sedan pulled over to indicate he was stopping, then suddenly turned and fled northbound at approximately 60 mph, too dangerous to pursue, so the pursuit was called off at Kraft Street. About two minutes later, the car was observed to be crashed into a tree at Kraft St. & Parham Dr., where a witness had pulled him from the vehicle. Inside the car was a Taurus handgun, an open container of alcohol, and marijuana, a “bag of colorful pills” (some of which tested positive for Fentanyl), and more marijuana was found on him at the hospital.
Clarksville police pulled over 32-year-old Nathaniel ‘Nate’ Crespo for a window tint violation on the Jaguar he was driving on May 11th. During the court of the traffic stop, officers claimed to smell marijuana, and Crespose stated his brother had recently smoked in the car. Officer searched the vehicle and located two bags, one orange, and the other black. Inside the orange bag was a vacuum-sealed bag of marijuana. Two mason jars of marijuana, along with baggies and a scale, were found in the black bag. The total weight was just under one pound, coming in at 410 grams, or just over 14 zips.
Clarksville Police conducted a traffic stop on a Toyota Corolla driven by Arnaldo Courtlandt as he was driving while using high beams due to a headlight being out. In the passenger seat was 29-year-old Taiesha Wiley. Officer Lyssed Pacheco asked them to step out of the vehicle, and says Courtlandt then consented to a search of his person during the traffic stop for a bright headlight. Officers found marijuana on Courtlandt, and an NCIC check showed an active warrant for Wiley. A search incident to her arrest revealed cocaine inside a folded-up piece of paper on her person. Officers also located her backpack which contained a small baggie and a cut straw inside. Wiley was taken into custody.
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.
22-year-old KeAundrea Stovall was a front-seat passenger in a vehicle driven by Fort Campbell Soldier Daniel Benefield on March 10th, which a deputy stopped after he says he noticed a tag light that wasn’t properly working. As Mr. Benefield stepped out of the vehicle to speak to the deputy, the back-seat passenger jumped into the driver’s seat and took officers on a chase for over eight miles. Before eventually coming to a stop, a gun was tossed out of the vehicle, and once the vehicle was searched, 43 grams of marijuana was found under the driver’s seat and another 6 grams in the trunk. No occupants would claim any of the items, so they were all charged.
If the name KeAundrea Stovall sounds familiar, it might be because she went viral on Valentine’s day after posting screenshots of her social media inboxes, showing hundreds of messages from local men, many of whom were not exactly single, leaving their significant others not exactly happy when they woke up on the day of love. She since removed the post, however, Clarksville Today saved a copy at the time, and has republished a sampling below.
Austin Peay Police Officer Levi Grubb says he observed 18-year-old Najee Brogdon driving a white Kia Optomi without headlights at 6:15 p.m. on February 27th. He conducted a traffic stop and says he immediately smelled marijuana. Brogdon admitted there was a black satchel with weed inside, and Officer Grubb found 22 grams of the green leafy goodness. He is charged with felony drug possession, and a commissioner set his bond at $10,000.
25-year-old Jonathan Collier was the driver of a vehicle owned by Maurice Stegall, who was riding in the backseat, with Tad Wilkinson in the front passenger seat. When police stopped the vehicle due to both tail lights not functioning, everyone denied ownership of a backpack in the backseat which contained marijuana, scales, baggies, and cigarillos. Collier is one of the three now charged with felony drug possession with intent to distribute, and is free on a $26,000 bond. Collier & Wilkinson work for ‘Casino Handyman’, a company owned by Maurice Stegall.
Clarksville Police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Jessica Phillips. Inside the passenger seat, a man told police his name was Kyjuan Schambers and came within days of providing the correct birthday for the actual Kyjuan Schambers. Not one to be outsmarted, Officer Matthew Johnson realized the information was fake and as he had the man step out of the vehicle, the man fled. After a short foot pursuit, he was taken into custody and admitted he was really 22-year-old Keaghan Wright. Wright had outstanding warrants for failing to appear for a prior excessive/abusive 911 call case.
Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Beck says he immediately noticed how badly 29-year-old Dre’von Davis’ hands were shaking as he conducted a traffic stop on his vehicle Wednesday night. A search of the white Buick would eventually reveal a backpack containing over a pound of marijuana, vape pens, and a handgun. Dre’von Davis is free on a $20,000 bond.
Clarksville Police Department Officer Robert Schohn says he observed 22-yea-old Jonathan Widney speeding on 101st Airborne Division Parkway and conducted a traffic stop.
During the traffic stop for speeding, K9 Officer N. Rodriguez arrived, and Officer Schohn made Widney exit the vehicle and informed him he was going to deploy the K9 for an open-air search after Widney denied consent to search the vehicle previously during the traffic stop. Upon threat of the K9 deployment, Widney admitted there was an ounce of marijuana in the trunk. Widney was charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $10,000.
