Sheriff Greg Speck reports that a Somerset man was arrested on various charges after Detectives conducted a traffic stop in the Science Hill community.  On Tuesday afternoon, Detective Lieutenant Daryl Kegley, Detective Matt Bryant, and Sergeant Richard Smith of the Sheriff’s Office were conducting surveillance of
known drug suppliers when they observed a 2000 Buick traveling on Highway 3264. Lieutenant Kegley witnessed the vehicle turn onto Ansel Road, failing to use a turn signal. Lieutenant Kegley and Detective Bryant conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle.
Once the Buick stopped, the passenger door opened, and a male subject, later
identified as Jordan S. Brinson, Age 33, of Somerset, fled from the scene. Detectives gave pursuit, on foot, and were able to catch the subject in a creek, a
short distance from the stop. The subject was ordered out of the creek but failed to comply. Detectives went into the creek to apprehend him. While in the creek, Detectives located a baggie containing suspected Suboxone by the suspect’s feet.
After the foot pursuit, Detectives returned to the vehicle with Brinson and discovered a concerned citizen, Edward Randall, stopped to assist the Detectives by detaining the driver of the suspect vehicle. Randall was concerned for the Detectives and wanted to make sure the driver didn’t leave the scene.
While at the vehicle, Brinson became combative. After a brief struggle, Brinson was able to be handcuffed and arrested. A search of Brinson’s pockets uncovered additional Suboxone. Detectives located a baggie just outside of the passenger door containing approximately 6 grams of methamphetamine. The traffic stop resulted in the following charges: Jordan S. Brinson, Age 33, of Somerset, was charged with Trafficking in a
Controlled Substance 1st degree, 1st offense (methamphetamine)(over 2 grams);  Possession of a Controlled Substance 2nd degree; Fleeing or Evading Police 2nd degree; Resisting Arrest.
Brinson was transported to the Pulaski County Detention Center without further incident. The investigation continues by the Narcotics Division of the Pulaski County
Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Greg Speck asked that if you have any information about drug activity or any crime to contact our office at 606-678-5145. You can remain anonymous. You can also leave a tip on our webpage at http://www.pulaskisheriff.com
