THUMPERRRR's picture

A 32 year-old Reno man was arrested Friday evening at 7:34 p.m. in the area of North Carson Street and College Parkway on felony drug possession and a host of misdemeanor offenses, a Carson City Sheriff's deputy reported.

Jeramy Scoggin was taken into custody after the motorcycle he was riding had been stopped for no visible license plate. Registration on the motorcycle was found to be expired for more than a year, according to the arrest report.

Scoggin was observed to be wearing the insignia of a motorcycle gang, the report said. He failed multiple times to comply with law enforcement instructions to place his hands on his head and keep his kick stand up while straddling the bike with his legs.

The sheriff's deputy repeated the commands, both times over the patrol unit's PA system. Scoggin then made a motion to his ears that he was unable to hear the officer's instructions; however, he had already partially complied with instructions by placing his hands atop his head, the report said.

As officers approached him, Scoggin put the kick stand down on his bike and removed his hands from his head. He as once again ordered to put his stand up and place his hands back on top of his head, the report said, but Scoggin told deputies he was not going to comply. He told officers the very same thing again after another order, stating that it was unsafe for him to comply.

A knife was observed in view on Scoggin's side. Because he refused to comply with instructions and he was armed with a weapon, a deputy grabbed him by the back of the vest, pulled him off the bike and put him on the ground, where he was detained in handcuffs, the report said.

During pat-down for additional weapons, a large folding knife was removed from Scoggin's right side. A search also recovered a vial containing a small amount of a white, powdery substance in one of Scoggin's pockets, the report said.

This substance, which was weighed at about two grams, field-tested presumptive positive for cocaine. Scoggin state had previously used cocaine in his life, but that this vial was one he had found on the ground. He said he had picked up because he did not like littering.

Scoggin was unable to provide valid registration or proof of insurance, the report said, and a records check of his license showed he did not have a motorcycle endorsement.

He was taken into custody and transported to the Carson City Jail, where he was booked on felony cocaine possession as well as misdemeanor obstruction, expired registration, no valid license and no proof of insurance. Bail: $3,913.
