On 7/11 at 9:30 p.m., an officer with the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office was traveling on Big Springs Road when he observed a black Nissan cross the center line of the roadway several times.
The vehicle was traveling at 50 miles per hour in a 25 miles per hour zone, and refused to stop. The female driver then began throwing multiple items out of the window.
A pursuit of the vehicle began, and stopped when the vehicle became stuck in a driveway on Hoot Owl Hollow Road.
Officers ordered the female driver to get out of the car, but she refused. Deputies were able to break the window, and place the female into custody.
She refused to cooperate with officers but was identified later as Andrea Stickel.
Officers responded to the location where Stickel threw the items out of the vehicle and located what appears to be marijuana, syringes, 59 grams of meth, several social security cards and drivers licenses, drug paraphernalia, a Sig Sauer BB Pistol, and $6,200 in cash.
Stickel was charged with evading arrest, driving on the wrong side of the roadway, stop sign x3, speeding, resisting arrest, fabricating/tampering with evidence, Schedule IV Drugs, Schedule II Drugs, and unlawful drug paraphernalia.
