A Mississippi attorney has been arrested on drug charges.
Richland police said in a Facebook post that Jeffrey Knight was arrested during a traffic stop conducted for numerous traffic violations on Tuesday night. A drug detection K-9 alerted officers, who conducted a search and found 8 grams of methamphetamine hidden inside the car.
News outlets report Knight, a local attorney, is charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.
He posted $100,000 bail on Wednesday morning.
District Attorney Michael Guest says a conviction for possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute in 2011 was dropped from Knight’s record after he completed a pre-trial aversion program.
It’s unclear if Knight has a lawyer.
