Deputies with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men on Thursday after conducting a traffic stop on Westover Avenue in Richmond, according to a release.
Around 6:10 p.m., the deputies stopped Jamez Chenault, 26, of Richmond, and Cammie Neeley, 27, of Berea for an equipment violation of their vehicle.
During the course of the investigation, deputies learned the driver was wanted on active warrants and an additional investigation led to the deployment of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office K-9.
The K-9 alerted the deputies which led to the seizure of suspected methamphetamine and marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to a release.
Chenault was arrested and charged with improper equipment, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, trafficking a controlled substance (methamphetamine), and active warrants, a release stated.
According to the sheriff’s office, as Neeley was being placed under arrest, he resisted and then assaulted Deputy Kevin Crutcher.
Deputy Jeff Bol then deployed his taser.
Neeley was then taken into custody without further incident and was charged with public intoxication, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, trafficking a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, and assault (third degree) of a police officer.
Crutcher was treated and released from Baptist Health Richmond as a result of the assault.
