THE PLANTED BUST
On December 11, 2008, two dozen officers, from 5 different law
enforcement agencies (Millington Police/ Tipton County Police/
Memphis O.C.U./ West TN Drug Task Force/
Shelby County Sheriff’s Office) under the command of
then-SHERIFF MARK H. LUTTRELL, Jr.,
execute a warrantless “Shock & Awe” raid on THE KINGPIN
at his nightclub, IMBIBRIOS. THE KINGPIN is charged with
Disorderly Conduct for checking the WARPIGZ, and
Possession for Sales of CANNABIS based on the discovery
of 2 baggies of CANNABIS (30.1 gm. & 10.2 gm.= 40.3 gm total)
in “common or accessible areas” of the club
. . . charges that are “nulle pros”.
LISTEN HERE to the full story of PUBLIC CORRUPTION
that led to the warrantless "Shock & Awe" raid.
presented by DEPUTY PETER M. MYLES,
April, 2009 that a 9.3 gm baggie of POT is discovered
in the squad car transporting THE KINGPIN.S.C.S.O. report from 12/11/2008, the night of the warrantess
"Shock & Awe" raid with evidence of NO WARRANT.FIND OUT HERE why these are the only pieces
of evidence left from case # 0814-2525, 12/11/2008 . . .
a case that has been disappeared from the record.Before JUDGE ROBERT EARL FOWLKES, May 2009,
THE KINGPIN confronts MYLES with the conflicting reports,
then demands MYLES reveal the name of the superior officer
who ordered him to offer PERJURED TESTIMONY,
PLANTED EVIDENCE and a FALSIFIED REPORT . . .
MYLES was the lone Negro officer at the scene.
A.D.A. W. CHRISTOPHER SCRUGGS objects, calls for a
recess and the matter is set for jury trial on July 24, 2009, for
what THE KINGPIN dubs “The Misdemeanor of the Century”.
THE KINGPIN slaps LUTTRELL, Jr. with a subpoena to
answer for the warrantless “Shock & Awe” raid.In this article reporting the July 16, 2009 arrest of THE KINGPIN
and the closure of his club as a Public Nuisance, then-D.A. BILL GIBBONS
(on the fast track to become “TN Homeland Commissioner) and
then-Sheriff (stumping for County Mayor) MARK H. LUTTRELL, Jr.,
claim undercover officers alledgedly made drug buys, when in fact,
it was a C.I. ASHLEY LYNN EGAN (a.k.a. “Scarlett”), working off
72 drug fraud charges, who allegedly made the drug & POT buys.
They only refer to the case of the warrantless “Shock & Awe” raid
that had been nulle pros, and do not mention the case of the CANNABIS
allegedly found in the squad car (later proven to be planted)
. . . a case GIBBONS, LUTTRELL, Jr. and WEIRICH wanted to bury.
One week and one day before the case THE KINGPIN called
“The Misdemeanor of the Century” was to come to trial on July 24, 2009,
the sheriff, the DA, the Asst. Sheriff, the police director, the police chief
and the media arrive in full force on July 16, 2009 to close THE KINGPIN
down over an alleged POT sale for $25 between C.I. EGAN and
THE KINGPIN on July 9, 2009; and a $40 Lortab sale allegedly
between C.I. EGAN and SHERRY HASSEN (bartender) on
July 14, 2009 when THE KINGPIN was not present.
On orders from LUTTRELL, Jr., A.D.A. W. CHRISTOPHER SCRUGGS, on the scene, instructs the media to film the items on the bar--- blood pressure meds, period pills, POT and tobacco roaches, and a customer’s crackpipe---none of which was in evidence against THE KINGPIN. JASON MILES then of WMC 5 relayed this information to THE KINGPIN on 2/8/2011 during a jailhouse interview hours before THE KINGPIN was released when the felony drug trafficking charges were dropped for lack of evidence.On September 3, 2009, before JUDGE FOWLKES, as a jury is WATCH ABOVE EPISODE
about to be empaneled, A.D.A. W. CHRISTOPHER SCRUGGS
declares it is not in the State’s interest to proceed against
THE KINGPIN to jury trial for Possession of CANNABIS,
because with 2 days jail credit credit before bailing out
THE KINGPIN has done more time than if convicted (11/29?).
SCRUGGS boasts: “The State has Mr. Peters on other serious
felony charges we will proceed with.” THE KINGPIN asserts:
“The only dope in the squad car that night was the deputy sheriff
driving it!” Then predicts: “The State will
never bring this drug trafficking case to trial!”LISTEN HERE as THE KINGPIN accuses
MAJOR MIKE McCUSKCER of PUBLIC CORRUPTION
in court on July 20, 2017 . . .
In the case from July 16, 2009, A.D.A. SCRUGGS recuses
himself for a CONFLICT OF INTEREST in October 2010,
A.D.A MAJOR MIKE McCUSKER takes over and on orders
from D.A. AMY P. WEIRICH, drops the felony drug trafficking
charges, then proceeds to jury trial for Possession of CANNABIS
carrying a maximum sentence of 11/29 . . .
THE KINGPIN had 19 months credit.P.S. . . . the jury finds THE KINGPIN guilty of
Possession of POT that he was not in possession of.
