Tuesday, October 20, 2020, Choctaw Nation Tribal Patrolman Anthony Garvin was traveling south on Highway 69 when he observed a red Ford truck cross the center line three times, cross the yellow line once, and change lanes without signaling.
Patrolman Garvin activated his emergency lights, signaling the driver to pull over, and made contact with the occupants of the vehicle.
The driver, Jordan Zain Guill, 19, and passenger, Andre Joe Scarbrough, 37, provided the officer with their identification cards.
Dispatch advised Patrolman Garvin that Guill had an active warrant through Collin County, Texas.
Guill was asked to exit the vehicle and was detained for the warrant.
Scarbrough exited the vehicle after Guill was placed in the officer’s patrol unit. Patrolman Garvin noticed Scarbrough had an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person. He had blood shot watery eyes, slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet.
Patrolman Garvin asked if he had anything illegal on his person. Scarbrough stated, “No but I do have a bottle of whiskey in the truck I have been drinking.”
Patrolman Garvin asked dispatch to send the next available wrecker, and began an inventory of the vehicle.
A black bag was located behind the driver seat containing a marijuana grinder and rolling papers. Inside the grinder were multiple “nuggets” of a green leafy substance weighing two grams, that field tested positive for marijuana. An opened 1.75 litter bottle of Seagrams whiskey, that was half empty, inside of a bag behind the passenger seat.
The officer also located a small brown zippered pouch with a glass pipe inside containing a burnt residue and a white powdered residue. The substance field tested positive for methamphetamine.
Guill stated that the marijuana was his, but not the glass pipe. Scarbrough stated that the bottle of whiskey was his, but did not claim the glass pipe either.
The pair were transported to the Atoka County Jail for booking. Guill was booked for his active warrant in Collin County.
Both men are charged with two counts of possession of controlled dangerous substance (misdemeanor), unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor), and transporting open container of alcoholic beverage (misdemeanor).
