He was arrested and charged with possessing a firearm during commission/attempt to commit a dangerous felony, possessing a prohibited weapon, three counts of manufacture/delivery/sell of a controlled substance, possession/delivery/sell of methamphetamine, unlawful drug paraphernalia, driving on a revoked license and a light law violation.

He was held in Washington County Detention Center on $62,000 bond awaiting an appearance in Sessions Court Wednesday.
