Tucker convicted of drug possession and DWI

On Jan. 3, Morrison County District Courts convicted Stefan Scott Tucker, 39, Little Falls, of one felony count of fifth degree possession of a controlled substance. He also was convicted of one misdemeanor count of fourth degree DWI.

On May 7, 2013, the Little Falls Police Department responded to a report of a man passed out in his running vehicle at a gas station. When the officer arrived, the man was identified as Tucker.

The officer turned off the vehicle and woke up Tucker to determine if he was all right. Since Tucker was jittery, nervous and incoherent, the officer performed field sobriety tests.

Tucker was placed under arrest for driving while impaired and transported to the Morrison County Jail. During a search of his person, marijuana and a baggie with white residue in it was found. Also located were several gray-colored pills which were later determined to be Oxycodone, a schedule II controlled substance which cannot be possessed without a prescription.

For the felony charge, Tucker was sentenced to 13 months in prison, stayed for five years plus 240 days in jail with credit for the 81 days already served. He was fined $135 and given five years of supervised probation.

For the misdemeanor charge, he was sentenced to 90 days in jail with credit for the 81 days already served.
