29-year-old Jacob Scott Segroves was taken into custody for driving under the influence-2nd offense, and the unlawful use of drug paraphernalia on May 21st. Around 5:04 p.m., Timothy Howell, a motorist, flagged deputies down after observing Segroves slumped over the steering wheel near the Donaldson Pike and Knapp Boulevard intersection. When officers arrived, they spoke with Howell, who advised them he was behind Segroves in traffic when he noticed he was not progressing with the flow of traffic. Howell stated he then pulled in front of Segroves’ car and started knocking on the window, trying to wake him up, but was unable to. Officers then woke up Segroves and had him exit his vehicle. Due to his condition, officers alerted the medics, but when they got there, he refused medical treatment. Afterward, Segroves allowed officers to search his car, during which they located two small clear baggies with a white powdery substance, later identified as cocaine. While being questioned about his medical history, Segroves told officers he had taken an “unknown substance,” causing him to fall into an unconscious state. Segroves then consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and was detained for the occurrence.
