Posted

WASHINGTON COUNTY - A Tennessee man who was an occupant in the vehicle and witness to the shooting incident that occurred near State Road 79 and Johnson Road on Sunday, is now behind bars.  

On Monday, September 6, Washington County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a call concerning two male subjects in the area of State Road 79 and Johnson Road, that appeared to be searching for something on the side of the highway.  

The men had returned to the scene, allegedly attempting to retrieve items discarded the previous day in relation to the shooting incident. When WCSO deputies arrived on scene, they observed one of the men walk in close proximity to the patrol car and discard a black object.  

Deputies attempted to make contact with one of the male subjects, but after repeatedly warning the subject to stop, a short foot chase ensued which ended with both of the men complying. The men were detained for questioning without further incident.  

Deputies then retrieved the items that were discarded by Adrian Lamont Cameron, 47, of Antioch, TN.  According to WCSO, the black object was a sock that contained several illegal narcotics. When Cameron was taken into custody, he was found to be in possession of the matching sock.  

Cameron was and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine, two counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, resisting arrest without violence and tampering with physical evidence. 

Cameron is currently on parole in Tennessee for a homicide. Tennessee officials advised they will be obtaining an arrest warrant for Cameron for violation of parole.
