Sex Offender Charged With Failing To Register
A Putnam County man, who was found drinking in a vehicle near the Wagon Wheel restaurant this week, has now been charged with failing to properly register as a sex offender. A report by sheriff's deputy Jeremy Nash says he was on patrol when he saw the vehicle and observed what appeared to be someone laid back in the driver's seat. That someone was identified as 47-year-old Anthony William Euler of Buffalo Valley Road. Nash says a warrants check revealed that Euler was wanted out of the state of California for violation of the sex offender registry law, but that California was not willing to extradite him. Further investigation revealed that Euler had been living in Cookeville for about a year, but had never registered as a sex offender in Tennessee. Euler goes to court on the charge on April 12th.
