Friday, March 31, 2017

On March 16, LPD stopped Tracy Urquart for running at stop sign on Jackson Avenue.

According to the police report, Urquhart said that she had just run to the store and did not bring her driver’s license. Entering her name into the system revealed that her license was suspended and that she had active warrants for her as well.

Noting slurred speech and glassy eyes, officers requested Urquhart take field sobriety tests, upon which she reportedly performed poorly.


She was charged with driving under the influence and driving on a suspended license, a charge the report noted was “approximately the 10th time” for her to have received.

At the Marshall County Jail, a deputy served her with warrants from the drug task force for criminal conspiracy to deliver a Schedule VI drug and criminal responsibility for facilitation of a felony.

Bond for the charges was set at $11,000.


• Investigating the sound of an argument at Rock Creek Park, Lewisburg Police officer Justin Gaines encountered Elizabeth Ann Wise and her boyfriend. Wise reportedly gave officers a false name and date of birth several times, delaying her identification.

Wise appeared unsteady on her feet and admitted that she had consumed several beers and shots of whiskey.

Wise was charged with public intoxication and criminal impersonation.

Arriving at the Marshall County Jail, Wise, according to the report, was warned by several officers to disclose any possible contraband on her person.

When she was searched, a smoking instrument and a substance suspected to be marijuana were found on her person.

Charges of drug paraphernalia, simple possession of a Schedule VI drug, and contraband in a penal institution were added. Bond was set at $12,500.

• Responding to a call on March 20 at Parkway Market of a man too intoxicated to get in his vehicle, LPD encountered David Norwood. Officers reported that Norwood was “very intoxicated and could hardly stand.”

Officers stopped field sobriety tests out of concern for Norwood’s safety. Taken to the hospital for a blood draw, Norwood reportedly had to be taken into the lab in a wheelchair.

Norwood was charged with driving under the influence (third offence) and held on $3,000 bond. A record check showed a DUI in 2016 in Maury County and another in Rutherford County in 2007.

• The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office and Cornersville Police assisted the 17th Judicial District Drug Task Force in serving warrants on Sheppard Branch Road in the early morning hours of March 23.

Taylor Chrystian Ellis was arrested on two warrants for possession of and criminal attempt to sell a Schedule II drug. A glass pipe and small amount of marijuana were also found during a search.

In addition to the two warrants, Ellis was charged with simple possession and drug paraphernalia and held on $8,500 bond.

• On March 25, Deputy Crane of the Sheriff’s Department stopped Steven Hillard on Finley Beech Road after observing him driving with a burned out headlight.

The deputy determined that Hillard’s license was revoked with three prior offenses for driving on a revoked license in 2014.

The deputy noted a smell of alcohol and Hillard reportedly said that he had consumed “a six pack or so.”

According to the report, Hillard refused the field sobriety test, stating “just take me to jail.”

Hillard was charged with driving under the influence, violation of the implied consent law, and driving on a revoked license (fourth offense). Bond was set at $2,500.

• Glen Charles Flaugher was charged on March 19 with driving without a license and drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $2,000.

• Joshua Aaron Ledford was charged with domestic assault on March 26 after Marshall County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a disturbance on Hoyte Ledford Road.

Bond was set at $1,500.
