Tennessee mayor up for re-election accused of possessing pot
WHITE HOUSE, Tenn. (AP) — A mayor of a Tennessee city who’s up for re-election has been accused of possessing marijuana.
The Tennessean reports White House Mayor Mike Arnold will appear in court next week on a charge of possessing the drug. An affidavit says Arnold was arrested in October 2017 after authorities responded to an emergency medical call at his home and found more than 9 grams of marijuana.
Arnold has been White House mayor since 2010 and is up for re-election this November. Arnold was scheduled to appear in court in November 2017, but court records say the case was continued.
Arnold declined the newspaper’s request to comment, directing questions to his attorney, Jim Simmons. Simmons and the Sumner County District Attorney’s office did not respond to requests for comment.
