Deputy Nathan Maxlow stopped a car on Main Street in Calvert City for having no operational tail lights. Upon the stop, one passenger, Leeann L. Travis, 29, Gilbertsville, jumped out of the car only to reenter as Maxlow approached.
During the investigation,Maxlow learned that the driver, James F. Shock Jr., 24, Calvert City, allegedly had no drivers license and was wanted in McCracken County based on a warrant. A field sobriety test indicated Shock may have been under the influence.
Maxlow allegedly found drug paraphernalia and marijuana residue in the car. When searching Travis's purse, he found a small tin containing a white powdery substance and a knife inside. Maxlow said she told him she put the tin in her purse after removing it from the car's console.
Maxlow reported he found a syringe in the lap of a third suspect, Michael B. Cash, 27.
Deputies charged Shock with DUI, driving with a suspended or revoked license, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to notify of change of address and no tail lights and for the McCracken County warrant. Travis faces charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and tampering with physical evidence.

The three were taken to the Marshall County Detention Center. Shock is being held in lieu of a $2,500 cash bond. Travis and Cash are being held in lieu of a $500 cash bond. All three will be arraigned in Marshall District Court on Wednesday.
