Man arrested with bad taste in his mouth

Friday, April 4, 2008

Jacob Parksey
A Bowling Green man recently learned that attempting to eat evidence would not stop him from being arrested.

According to Clay City Police Department Chief Terry Skaggs, officers arrested Jacob B. Parksey, 22, during a traffic stop on April 2.

Around 10:20 p.m., Wednesday, CCPD Sgt. Kris Keller stopped a vehicle because of a broken windshield in an area just south of the intersection of State Road 59 and 46.

Inside the vehicle were an unidentified woman, two small children and Parksey.

As Keller questioned the female driver, there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the car and Parksey began to act strangely.

When asked to step outside the passenger side of the vehicle, Parksey agreed but took his jacket off and threw it on the ground before being searched.

"It was then Keller noticed that he was chewing and trying to swallow something," Skaggs said.

When the officer attempted to stop Parksey from swallowing something potentially harmful, he noticed a green leafy substance in Parksey's mouth.

A brief struggle took place as Parksey fell to the ground, spitting out the substance.

Once in controlled custody, Parksey admitted to trying to swallow marijuana.

As Clay County Sheriff's Deputy Chris Robinson put Parksey in the patrol car for transport to the Clay County Justice Center, Keller and CCPD Assistant Chief Mick Neiswinger learned that Parksey was wanted on an outstanding warrant for an unrelated legal matter.

Parksey was booked into jail on preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement, possession of marijuana less than 30 grams, obstructing justice and being a common nuisance.

Parksey is currently out on bond awaiting formal arraignment according to the court calendar.

I know this is a late post, but I had to say I agree completely with Sidney's post. The area just south of SR 46 and SR 59 is NOT in the city limits of Clay City. It would have to be much farther south.
