A Tennessee woman was jailed Thursday on felony drug charges after recovering from injuries sustained in a wreck in Floyd County in October.
According to Floyd County Jail reports:
Sasha Nicole Lorraina Kirkpatrick, 21, of Sevierville, Tennessee, was picked up at the Knox County Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee and returned to Rome on Thursday on a felony charge of possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug-related objects.
Kirkpatrick was seriously injured in a wreck on Calhoun Avenue at Mango Road on Oct. 16 and hospitalized for an extended period of time. She was stabilized at Floyd Medical Center immediately following the wreck and then transferred to the CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga to be closer to her home and family.
Two men were in the vehicle with Kirkpatrick, but weren’t injured in the wreck. Nicolas Scates, 32, of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Jonathan Ray Lester, 30, of Adairsville, were charged with felony possession of meth after the wreck. Both were released from jail on bonds Oct. 17.
On Thursday, Kirkpatrick was picked up on a warrant alleging she had a quantity of meth in her clothing and various drug paraphernalia — a needle, scales and a container with meth residue.
Kirkpatrick was in jail without bond Thursday night.
