NEWPORT-A man arrested for public intoxication allegedly flushed some suspected drugs down a toilet after pushing aside a correctional officer to flush the contraband away, on Sunday, Jan. 6, the Cocke County Sheriff's Office reported.

Correctional officer Jody Ball said Newport Police Department Patrolman Will Garber brought to the county jail Simon Francis Asbury, 30, of 740 English Mountain Road, in Newport, with the charge of public intoxication.

While being searched at the jail, the new inmate allegedly put his left hand down his pants, pulled out a small, clear plastic bag with an unknown substance, and threw the bag into the toilet, the report stated.
