CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – Jon Travis Dilbeck was booked into jail for the 18th time on Saturday, according to jail records.
Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Dakota Williams was traveling south on Hwy 116 when a black Mustang driven by Dilbeck pulled out from a stop sign on Old Vasper Road in front of his patrol car. Williams had to brake hard and swerve to not hit the car. At this point, Williams activated emergency equipment and stopped the vehicle.
When Williams spoke with Dilbeck, he told the officer he didn’t have a driver’s license or insurance on the vehicle, according to a report from the sheriff’s department. A check of the driver’s license revealed a revoked license with one prior offense for driving while revoked.
“There was probably a bag of weed in between the driver’s seat and center console,” was Dilbeck’s response when the officer asked to search the car. After searching the vehicle, Williams found a clear baggie containing a clear leafy substance believed to be marijuana in between the driver’s seat and center console.
Dilbeck, 47, 381 Dilbeck Lane, Caryville is charged with driving while revoked, drivers to exercise due care, violation of TN financial law and possession of schedule VI-controlled substance. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 09/19/2019-6AM)
