Byrge reportedly stopped the younger Sexton on suspicion of an outstanding warrant for violation of probation.  Authorities say Sexton was also driving without a license, as his driving privileges had been suspended for not appearing in court in July 2017.

The elder Sexton was reportedly a passenger in the car.  Authorities say the elder Sexton admitted to having a ‘rig’ in his pocket and handed over a loaded syringe.  He also reportedly had a small bag of methamphetamine in his shoe.

Sexton, Sr. was jailed on charges of possession of a schedule II controlled substance and violation of probation.  Sexton, Jr. was booked on charges of driving on suspended license and violation of probation.
