Columbus police say that a local man is facing drug charges after a traffic stop this morning for not using his turn signal.
26-year-old Jack D. Bryant didn’t use his turn signal when changing lanes on Gladstone Avenue near 7th Street at about 12:45 a.m., says Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the police department. After being pulled over by Officer Robert Michell, Officer Branch Schrader and his police dog Argo were called to the scene and Argo alerted to the smell of narcotics in the vehicle, Harris says.
After initially refusing to get out of the vehicle, Bryant was arrested. A search of the vehicle allegedly uncovered methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes and other drug paraphernalia inside a backpack, Harris says.
Bryant is facing charges of resisting law enforcement, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a legend drug injection device.
