Nashville Airport Police say they observed a tan Plymouth Neon traveling at a high rate of speed with window tint darker than Tennessee law allows. A traffic stop was initiated on the vehicle driven by Hakeem Turnipseed, which revealed 19-year-old Frankin “Big Frank” Boykins was in the passenger seat. Both of the men had identification from the state of Mississippi. Turnipseed told officers he had to urinate, and that was the reason for the high speed. Officers reportedly smelled marijuana, and Boykins handed over a blunt and stated he had a backpack with more marijuana inside. A search of the car and Boykins’s backpack revealed a stolen handgun and 1 oz of marijuana.
Franklin Latroy Boykins of Gallatin Ave in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 7th, charged with theft of firearm and possession or casual exchange. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,500.
