A Grovetown man’s loud stereo recently landed him in hot water and marijuana charges.

Brandon Kesean Rickerson, 21, of Brian Lane, was charged with possession of marijuana and a city noise violation.

A Grovetown Department of Public Safety officer heard Rickerson’s car stereo playing too loudly at about 9:45 p.m. July 22 as he drove on East Robinson Avenue. The officer pulled Rickerson over.

The officer noticed that Rickerson was extremely nervous, was sweating heavily and his hands were shaking badly, according to a department incident report. The officer also noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the car. When asked if he had marijuana, Rickerson said he had “one blunt” and handed the officer a bag of what appeared to be marijuana. He was handcuffed and placed in the officer’s patrol car.

As two officers searched Rickerson’s car, they found four more clear bags of what was later confirmed to be marijuana hidden in the air vent behinds the instrument panel cover, according to the report.

Rickerson was released from the city jail after posting a $665 bond, according to jail records.

Loud stereos.

Works in Richmond County, too. At least one I called in a few years back resulted in a drug bust because of the quick response time. I wish they could stop every car with window rattling music, windows that are tinted darker than the legal limit, and obscured tags (those filters that make it hard to read the tags). All of those should be reasons officers can stop and search a vehicle at the discretion of officers.

I would like to shake this

I would like to shake this officer's hand. We won't establish control over the hood rats who disturb ordinary folks until we take simple steps like enforcing noise ordinances.

Thats outstanding!

Thanks to AutumnLeaves, I'll be stopped while listening to Beyonce simply because I cant hear and dont notice that my music is too loud. Maybe we can also stop anyone that appears to be over the age of 50 because their reflexes might not be too good. Then again women would have to be stopped as well because we are frequently putting on makeup while driving. Forget it, lets go Minority Report in Augusta and scan retinas.

all to rare occassion

and a "two for". we don't want to upset anyone's artistic expression. and remember when you call, there are hours of the day when you supposedly cannot be disturbed in CC. And the officer was Grovetown Public Safety according to the script.
