A homeless man is facing multiple charges after being questioned during a driving under the influence stop at mile marker 80 on Interstate 75.
After arresting the driver for DUI on the interstate, Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jerramie Bowen spoke with Isiah Lamont Mabin, 24, homeless, who was a passenger in the vehicle. In the police report, Bowen said he smelled an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Bowen said Mabin acted “very evasive” and was asked to keep his hands on his head as he stepped out of the vehicle.
“He did step out and then reached toward his wrist,” Bowen said. “I then drew my weapon and told him again to put his hands on his head.”
Mabin was detained, and during a pat down, police found a Smith & Wesson 9mm gun in his waist band.
Mabin, who was unsteady on his feet and had bloodshot eyes, threw a hand-rolled blunt into the back floorboard of the vehicle, according to police. After placing Mabin under arrest, Bowen found identification in his wallet indicating that the man’s name was Jamien Thomas, which Mabin had used up to that point when speaking with police. Bowen then confirmed his real name to be Isiah Mabin.
Mabin was charged with bringing contraband into a penal institution, criminal impersonation, possession of a handgun while under the influence, possession of a firearm during a felony, public intoxication, possession of a Schedule III substance and simple possession/casual exchange and was held on $42,000 bond.
