35-year-old Kayla Jo Meives faces child abuse/neglect and drug paraphernalia charges after Clarksville Police were notified she was nodding off while parked in a Sonic stall for over ten minutes with a 7-year-old child in the vehicle. As Officer Andrew Ramirez approached the driver’s side of her vehicle, he noticed she was holding a dollar bill with white powder/residue on it. She quickly stuffed it into her purse before stepping out of the Kia Sorento and admitted it was “more than a dollar bill.” Inside the vehicle, multiple dollar bills with drug residue were found, and a field test on them returned as positive for Fentanyl.
A woman matched with a man who went by the name “Junior” on the dating app ‘Tagged’ and the two decided to meet at the Dover Crossing Sonic. As she arrived, ‘Junior’, who was later identified as 25-year-old Christopher Scales, asked her to get out of the car and give him a hug. As she did he opened her back door, grabbed a clear purse and white backpack, and fled on foot down the path behind the Sonic. Inside the purse and backpack was a laptop, a military ID, $800 in cash, two food stamp cards, a CashApp card, and a Venmo card. She gave chase after him until he turned and pulled a gun and racked the slide, at which point she retreated. He was positively identified in a photo lineup and taken into custody the following day.
