Police say intoxication, carrying gun in pocket resulted in arrest
Carter County deputies’ second visit to an apartment in less than 30 minutes yielded a trip to jail for a Carter County man – without the pistol they said he was carrying in his pocket.
Jacky Glenn Lovelace, 59, 1012 Grindstaff Ave., was charged with public intoxication and possession of a handgun while intoxicated after he was accused of threatening his neighbor with a handgun.
According to the arrest report, Carter County Sheriff’s Department officers arrived at the apartment complex at the address for the first time at 11 p.m.
At the apartment, officers spoke with Tupac Armaru Shakur, who said he had gotten into a verbal argument with Lovelace and that Lovelace made statements about being armed.
When speaking with Lovelace inside his apartment, officers reported they noticed he had a pistol in his pants pocket and that Lovelace appeared to be intoxicated. Officers then advised Lovelace to stay inside his apartment.
Later at 11:23 p.m., officers were called back to the same apartment complex, where officers said Lovelace was sitting outside Shakur’s apartment on the porch.
CCSD Deputy Salvatore Caccamo reported that he removed a loaded 9mm Hi-Point pistol from Lovelace’s right front pants pocket. Lovelace was then arrested and transported to the Carter County Jail.
