Unregistered, reckless trucker found using meth on side of road


A truck driver was arrested on Monday after complaints of his reckless driving led to the discovery of methamphetamine. 

The incident happened on May 17th in Edmonson County, Kentucky. 

According to ABC 13 News, Edmonson County Sheriffs were alerted to a tractor trailer weaving in and out of emergency lanes and driving recklessly. 

When police showed up to investigate, the truck driver had already pulled over to the side of the road, and was found standing between his truck and trailer with a towel in his hand. 

Officers then discovered a knife in the driver’s pocket and methamphetamine inside of the towel. 

Truck driver Phillip W. Myers was then arrested and is now facing charges for possession of a controlled substance, prescription controlled substance not in proper container, drug paraphernalia, and no registration plates. 

Myers is currently being held in the Hart County Jail.
