On Sunday morning November 15, 2020, at 5:12am Middlesboro Police Officer Ryan Collins responded to a complaint of a man passed out in a handicapped space in a black 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe still running.
Upon contact with the vehicle he saw 50-year-old Donald Jackson of Pineville passed out sitting in the driver’s seat of the vehicle.

The vehicle was then searched and located a second plastic bag containing suspected Methamphetamine.
Jackson was then administered standard field sobriety tests, which he failed. He was also found not to have insurance and an expired operator’s license.
Donald Jackson was arrested and lodged in the Bell County Detention Center charged with Possession of controlled substance - 1st degree, 1st offense (Methamphetamine), operating a motor vehicle under the influence, no insurance, and operating a motor vehicle on an expired license.
