A disorderly conduct charge and drug-related charges were levied against a Union City man following an alleged incident Monday night at a local restaurant’s drive-thru.
James Vollie Luker, 40, of 610 South Home St., Union City, was arrested at 8:18 p.m. at KFC at 1704 West Reelfoot Ave. in Union City, according to a Union City Police Department report.
He was charged with disorderly conduct, possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance, police reported.
Police had responded to KFC shortly before 8 p.m. due to employees being alarmed by a man wearing handcuffs at the drive-thru window.
According to the report, an employee told police Luker placed an order and pulled around to the window, where he told her that police were after him and asked if she could remove the handcuffs from his hands. He allegedly insisted several times, alarming the employee and other employees.
An officer reported he went to the drive-thru and observed Luker wearing the handcuffs. The officer removed the cuffs from Luker and also noted there was a 14-year-old girl inside the vehicle at the time.
Luker was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct. During a subsequent search, police found three Alprazolam pills and two marijuana cigarettes, according to the report.
He was transported to the Obion County Law Enforcement Complex.
