Ashton Taylor Christian, 25, of Shadow Lane in Rickman was charged with possession of a controlled substance, tampering with or fabricating evidence and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia after a car in which Christian was a passenger was stopped by the Tennessee Highway Patrol Thursday night.

Trooper Mark Mahan stopped a black Ford 500 on Highway 111 when he observed the driver not wearing a seatbelt, according to the warrant.

A police drug dog alerted officers to the presence of illegal substances in the vehicle, and a search revealed a backpack with digital scales, a calibration weight, an uncapped used needle and a grinder containing leafy green residue.

Christian also was found to have a balloon of methamphetamine in his rectum, according to the warrant.

Christian was arrested and held with a $13,000 bond.
