LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – A car parked in the road on Ivey Hollow Road, just off Davis Chapel Road, prompted a response from Campbell County Sheriff’s Sergeant Tosha Tackett last Tuesday night. The information relayed to Tackett was that a car was in the road with a man and a woman allegedly under the influence inside the car.
The Sergeant came in contact with the person behind the wheel, Ann Nicole Massengill, who dropped the car keys from the ignition to the floor board and then exited the car. The report reads that Massengill did not have any form of identification, her drivers license was revoked and the car did not match that of the license plate. Valid insurance for the car could not be provided.
Once outside the car, Tackett noticed Massengill attempting to put something down the front of her pants and told her to hand it over but instead tossed the items in a field. Tackett outlined that it was a struggle to arrest Massengill as she kept pulling away while the Sargent was attempting to cuff her. Once Massengill was handcuffed, she was placed inside the officer’s cruiser affording the Sergeant a chance to locate what was thrown in the field.
According to the report, Tackett recovered a couple of small metal containers; one had a white powdery residue believed to be meth and the other contained blue pills thought to be xanax. In Massengill’s pink purse, Tackett found a clear pipe with white residue inside it.
Massengill was arrested on multiple charges. However, the report did not detail any further information on the man who was in the car with Massengill. Her charges include driving while revoked (4th offense), violation of the Tennessee financial law, violation of the registration law, possession of drug paraphernalia, destruction of evidence, resisting arrest and possession of schedule IV and II controlled substances.
No bond was set for Massengill as she remains housed in the Campbell County Jail this morning. The 41-year old La Follette woman, arrested for the 19th time, is due in court later today. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/30/2020-6AM)
