Violation of Parole warrant results in arrest, additional charges

ANDERSON CO., July 24, 2013--On July 23, at approximately 12:54 a.m., Anderson County Deputies Lloyd Giles and Johnny Gorden went to 191 Private Road 6022, to serve an arrest warrant for 56 year-old Travis Dow Brotherton, on Violation of Parole.

Upon arrival, Deputies made contact with a resident of the house who stated Brotherton was staying in the house and was in the back room. Deputies went to the back room where he was staying and found Brotherton hiding in the closet, behind some clothes.

Brotherton was taken into custody without incident.

Brotherton waled over to a night stand to retrieve his money and Deputies saw a glass pipe, commonly used for smoking illegal narcotics. The pipe contained a crystal substance which later tested positive for Methamphetamine.

Deputy Gorden asked Brotherton if there were any illegal drugs in the room that a child could possibly find, and Brotherton stated that there was. Brotherton showed Deputies where he had a pill bottle containing Methamphetamine.

Brotherton was then transported to the Anderson County Jail without incident, booked in on the warrant for Violation of Parole, a third degree felony, with no bond, and charged with Possession of Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1, 1-4 grams, a third degree felony, with a bond set by Judge Carl Davis at $15,000, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, a class C Misdemeanor, with bond set by Judge Davis at $300.
