News Staff Writer


A Fairhope man was arrested on felony and misdemeanor drug charges after an Atmore police officer spotted a car without taillights that was swerving as it traveled along Alabama 21 in the predawn hours of February 10.
Atmore police reports show a traffic stop was conducted near the highway’s intersection with Sunset Drive around 3:35 a.m.
The reporting officer noted that the driver, Nathan Williams, 26, showed “obvious signs of intoxication.” Williams agreed to a Standard Field Sobriety Test, which he ultimately failed, and he was placed under arrest.
A search of the vehicle led to discovery of a 10-mg Oxycodone Hydrochloride pill, a socket with a green, leafy residue on it that field-tested positive for marijuana, and a gram of a green, leafy substance that field-tested positive for marijuana.
Williams, who is charged with one count each of possession of a controlled substance, second-degree possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and DUI.
He was released from the Escambia County Detention Center (ECDC) on February 13.
Other felony arrests included:
*Fred H. Hall


No details were provided, and the arresting agency is incorrectly listed on ECDC records, but the jail website shows that 57-year-old Fred H. Hall of Atmore was arrested February 12.
Hall is charged with one count each of possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony, and fourth-degree theft, a Class A misdemeanor.
Jail records show Hall was arrested by Atmore police, but Sgt. Darrell McMann said the agency did not arrest the local man, who remained behind bars Friday afternoon, February 16.
*Steven Ray Slack


No details were furnished, and the jail website does not list the arresting agency, but the ECDC website shows the February 9 arrest of Steven Ray Slack, 32, of Perdido.
Slack is charged with one count each of possession of an unspecified controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Perdido man was released from jail February 12 on bond.
