August 15, 2007

MEMPHIS, TN – A Memphis city employee, Darius Patton, was charged after police busted him for allegedly selling drugs out of a city truck, according to the Web site www.mcstations.com.

Court documents show that Patton was charged with using and possessing marijuana with intent to sell. Patton was on duty in a Memphis Public Works barricade truck when an undercover Blue Crush officer made the arrest. Patton works as a night watchman.

“Darius Patton was arrested by city police while on duty and in responsible charge of a city vehicle,” said Memphis Public Works Director Jerry Collins, as quoted by www.wmcstations.com.

Patton is back on the job because he hasn’t been convicted of anything, the report said.

The city administration is conducting its own investigation.
