Man Sues County for Wrongful Arrest
A man who spent three weeks in jail is now suing Sullivan County. Michael C. Sullivan came to the area for the Rainbow gathering in the Cherokee National Forest when he was pulled over for a seat belt violation. His vehicle was searched and two plastic bags containing “a white substance,” a glass jar containing an “off white substance” were found. Using a field test, deputies said the materials were meth and liquid THC. Sullivan’s car was impounded, he was arrested and spent three weeks in jail before being able to post bond. Eventually the substances were tested by the TBI and it turned out they weren’t drugs after all. The charges were dropped, but Sullivan wants justice. He’s asked for $500,000 from Sullivan County, claiming his constitutional rights were violated. He names Sullivan County Mayor Steve Godsey, Sheriff Wayne Anderson and two deputies in the suit as well. He also wants $1 million from Safariland, the company that manufactures the field drug testing equipment. A court date has not been set.
