LEBANON, TN – Lebanon Police Officer Ariel Carrillo was dispatched to 703 S. Cumberland on March 29th, for what was initially coded as a domestic call, and resulted in the arrest of 24-year-old Jonathan Culver, who was dropping hypodermic needles from his pockets while speaking with officers.
Upon arrival, Officer Carrillo reports making contact with Culver, who was ‘obviously under the influence of some drug’, describing him as having difficulty carrying on a conversation, and unable to be still – even beginning to hum during their attempted conversation.
During the interaction, Culver continued to place his hands in his pockets, and being told to remove them. During one of the times he removed his hands from his pockets, he dropped two hypodermic needles and a white piece of paper, later determined to contain heroin. This resulted into Culver being taken into custody, and a search of his person conducted. Officer Carrillo located a folded dollar bill, containing an Oxycontin pill.
Jonathan Culver , 24, was charged with public intoxication, paraphernalia, possession of a schedule II narcotic, and possession of a schedule I narcotic. He remains in the Wilson County Jail on these and additional charges, including violations of his probation.
