57-year-old Sidney Weir was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a weapon while under the influence, unlawful possession of a weapon, public intoxication, and evading arrest after police responded to a shots fired call, found him leaving the scene, and refused police commands to stop.
On May 16th, LPD Sgt. Jesse Scott, alongside Officers Hollins and Clark, responded to a shots fired call on Cedar Street in Lebanon. On arrival, they found Sidney Weir leaving the scene on a bicycle. Scott urged Weir to stop, but was consistently met with Weir’s refusals. After Officer Clark reached Weir, a frisk was conducted.
During the search, Officer Hollins found a Sig SER 9mm in Weir’s front pocket with one bullet in the chamber. According to the affidavit, Weir has been convicted of two cases of aggravated assault and one of robbery with a deadly weapon in the past. Upon further investigation of Weir, a “strong odor” of alcohol was present and two clear plastic bags were confiscated, carrying a green leafy substance.
Sidney Weir was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a weapon while under the influence, unlawful possession of a weapon, public intoxication, and evading arrest. He was later freed on pre-trial release.
