Georgia man nabbed for drugs, firearm
 
A Georgia man is facing multiple charges related to drugs and the illegal possession of a firearm after being spotted swerving on the road and crossing the center line over the weekend on Interstate 75.

Spotting the driver of a silver Lexus traveling erratically down the interstate near mile marker 76, Loudon County Sheriff's Office Deputy Ron DeLand turned on his lights and followed the vehicle until it stopped in the fast lane of the highway, according to the arrest report.

After the driver, Nicholas Jacob Gann, 23, McDonough, Ga., pulled onto a safer part of the interstate, DeLane approached Gann and asked if he was OK, DeLand wrote, noting that the driver had trouble answering questions and appeared "very nervous."
 
Gann showed signs of intoxication and had a blue powder on his mouth, according to reports.
 
"I noticed a plastic bag between his legs," DeLand wrote. "I asked several times what was in the bag. Driver wouldn't answer. He kept reaching around in his seat."
 
During a search of the vehicle, deputies found a loaded pistol between the driver's seat and console and blue and orange pills in the plastic bag, DeLand wrote, noting that the blue pills matched the substance that was found on Gann's mouth.
 
Police also found a white container with numerous blue and orange pills and one pink pill. Gann told deputies he had taken "some of the pills" while en route to Rutledge that morning, according to the report.
 
The pills were identified as 20 mg dextroamphetamine, 10 mg clonzepam and 30 mg dextroamphetamine.
 
Gann was charged with manufacture/sell/delivery/resale of a Schedule IV substance, manufacture/sell/delivery/resale of a Schedule II substance, possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony, possession of a handgun while under the influence, driving under the influence and simple possession/casual exchange and held on $115,500 bond.
