Drug Charges Filed Against Festival Goers
One man from South Carolina and another from Colorado remain jailed in Putnam County today on drug charges. Authorities say both were pulled over, in separate incidents, on Highway 111, by troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Both were reportedly making their way to the Bonnaroo Music Festival last week. And both allegedly had large amounts of drugs. Authorities say 35-year-old Scott Fignar of Myrtle Beach, S.C., allegedly had 22 "dots" of LSD in his possession, as well as a glass pipe and a metal grinder. Meanwhile, 29-year-old Douglas Winter of Basalt, Colo., was alleged to be in possession of more than a thousand pills, as well as two ounces of marijuana. The public defender's office has been appointed to represent the two.
