Noah Arnwine - previous arrest

21-year-old Noah Arnwine of Tazewell was arrested by Tazewell Police Officer Colby Werner after he was stopped for failing to maintain a lane of travel. Officer Werner also determined that Arnwine was under the influence. He was booked into the Claiborne County Jail at 4:50 Saturday morning February 13, 2021.


Arnwine was charged with DUI, failure to maintain lane, possession of schedule 6 (Marijuana), and unlawful drug paraphernalia – which are all misdemeanors. He was also charged with two felonies – possession of a handgun while under the influence and possession of a firearm during a felony.


Noah Arnwine was hired as a correctional/transport officer under former Claiborne Sheriff David Ray. During an inmate transport in 2019 Arnwine was a passenger in the vehicle and emptied his .38 caliber Ruger of all but one chamber. He ended up shooting through the windshield of the vehicle during rush hour on Interstate 75 north near Philadelphia, Tennessee. He later turned himself in to the Loudon County Jail.


He plead guilty to a misdemeanor reckless endangerment charge on Thursday, April 4, 2019. He was given an 11 month 29 day unsupervised probation sentence which also required community service and that he take a gun safety course.


Arnwine was later terminated from the department by Sheriff Bob Brooks in August of 2019 for not following orders.
