LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Donovan Shane Morgan allegedly told Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Weaver that he had shown up in the perfect part of his story.
It was at 2:45am on the morning of Sunday, July 11, when Weaver talked with Morgan who was sitting in the parking lot of the La Follette United Methodist Church. Weaver said the 31-year old Morgan had slurred speech and was making incoherent statements like ” I see the righteousness in your eyes.”
Morgan’s field sobriety test indicated that he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. According to the report, Morgan told the deputy that he had used drugs in the past 36 hours.
Weaver placed Morgan, Parrott Lane at Caryville, under arrest and while transporting him to the Campbell County Jail, Morgan allegedly continued making incoherent statements including loudly praying for Weaver. Once at the jail, Morgan refused to exit the cruiser until his prayers were finished.
Jail records indicate that this was the fifth arrest for the unemployed Morgan. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/30/2021-6AM)
