Butt dialing lands a man in jail facing drug charges

Posted: Updated:

SWEETWATER, TN (WRCB) - A Sweetwater man is in trouble after an apparent butt-dial leads to a drug bust.

A call came into 911 last Friday, but all that could be heard was a conversation in background.

A dispatcher listened in to hear arguing over illegal drugs.

Athens police responded to the location of the call and found Aaron Thompson in possession of pills.

Thompson claimed to have a prescription, but could not provide one.
