CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – Not wearing a seatbelt led to a La Follette man’s 16th arrest. Last Thursday, Branden Robert Treadway, no stranger to police, reunited with deputies after Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Nathanial Bostic pulled over Treadway’s Nissan Sentra.

The traffic stop ended up in the parking lot of the Caryville Shell gas station. As the driver, Treadway, stepped out of his car, Bostic requested to see his driver’s license. Based on the report from the sheriff’s office, the 30-year- old Treadway allegedly told the deputy “he just had them reinstated.” Bostic’s check of the license through Central Dispatch indicated that Treadway’s license was suspended.

Bostic then came in contact with 46-year old Vanessa Lynn Seiber of 712 East Beech Street in La Follette. She was the front seat passenger in Treadway’s Sentra.

A man identified as Charles Zachary Slagle was in the back seat of the car. The deputy saw Slagle begin to close his eyes and slump. Slagle allegedly appeared to be having an overdose.

Bostic and Sgt. David Wormsley administered NARCAN Nasal Spray to Slagle and pulled him out of the car. Slagle soon responded to the NARCAN and became responsive. Bostic monitored Slagle until the Campbell County EMS arrived.

Wormsley and Lt. Mallory Campbell searched the Nissan. A clear plastic baggy with a white powdery substance, believed to be heroin, was allegedly found in the console. Both Treadway and Seiber said the baggy did not belong to them, according to the report from the sheriff’s office.

The 29-year- old Slagle of 810 South 8th Street in La Follette was arrested for violation of probation according to jail records.

Seiber was arrested for possession of a schedule I controlled substance as was Treadway of 916 West Forrest Street in La Follette. Treadway also faces a charge of driving while suspended. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/03/2021-6AM)
