DA asks for TBI review of local drug task force case involving meth charges, and the behavior of two agents
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation will review a local drug task force case involving meth charges, and the behavior of two agents during the late November arrest.
Last week District Attorney General Dan Alsobrooks requested TBI review a case charging a Fairview man with possession and promotion of meth and resisting arrest Nov. 26.
Richard D. Lowe Jr., 31, of Fairview, faces single counts of felony possession of schedule II drugs for resale and promotion of meth manufacturing; and misdemeanor resisting arrest.
Lowe appeared for a criminal hearing Nov. 30 in Dickson County General Sessions Court, but his case was waived to a grand jury. As of press time, he remained jailed in lieu of $32,000 bond.
Alsobrooks reported Monday that he had not received a complaint from Lowe of “excessive force” by two drug agents during the Nov. 26 arrest.
“When I learned that the case had been made and that there had been a resisting arrest charge, and that there was some force used in the arrest, given all the circumstances we’ve had on some other cases in the district, I just thought it was a good precaution, as you would say, to have the TBI look at it,” Alsobrooks said.
