Shaking Driver Issued Citation/Passenger Arrested for Meth
Peg Broadcasting News/CPD Wednesday May 4, 2016

A shaking driver was issued a citation and his passenger was arrested late Tuesday night during a routine traffic stop. According to reports, Crossville Police stopped a white GMC Yukon because the passenger was not wearing a seatbelt. The officer noticed that the driver, Jeremy Jonathan Nobles, 33, of Crossville, was shaking and Nobles admitted he was nervous because he did not have a valid drivers license. A consented search revealed that the passenger, Grover Jerome William, 22 of Crossville, had 0.3 grams of methamphetamine in his wallet. There were also issues with the vehicles registration and because Nobles could not immediately establish proof of ownership, the vehicle was towed. Nobles was issued a misdemeanor citation for driving on a suspended license. Williams was arrested for simple possession of methamphetamine and transported to the Cumberland County Justice Center.

Cumberland County Sheriff Casey Cox has issued a statement on the Departments Facebook page commending the hard work by Cumberland Countys Correction Officers.

Sheriff Cox wrote:

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5187, creating "National Correctional Officers Week." Each year, the first full week in May is recognized as National Correctional Officers Week, commemorating the contributions of correctional officers who work in jails, prisons, and community corrections across the country.
Correction Officers of the Cumberland County Sheriffs Office have a difficult and most of the time thankless job. They are hidden away inside a fortress of concrete, chain link fence, and razor wire. They are out of sight and out of mind to many, but in reality they are absolutely essential to the law enforcement and quality of life for the citizens of Cumberland County in which they proudly serve. The Correctional Officers are courageous law enforcement professionals that disrupt violent confrontations, ensure order, and serve as the voice of authority, while also ensuring the safety and welfare of the inmates. I want to personally thank and recognize the Correction Officers of the Cumberland County Sheriffs Office for their hard work and dedication. It is an honor to work hand and hand with such an awesome group of men and women that display such a high degree of Integrity, Professionalism, and Respect on a daily basis. Your service definitely does not go unnoticed. Again, thank you for your service!
