On February 28, 2003 at 12:45 AM Officer Jeff Chamberlain of the Thibodaux Police Department was traveling West on LA Hwy. 1 near Canal Blvd. when another vehicle traveling East on LA Hwy. 1 swerved into his lane nearly striking Officer Chamberlain’s police unit.
Officer Chamberlain then initiated a traffic stop with this vehicle where he then met with the driver who was then identified as Beau Adams Age 25 of Gibson, LA.
During the course of Officer Chamberlain’s investigation, he saw Mr. Adams place a small plastic bag into the glove compartment of the car. Officer Chamberlain did see the contents of the bag, which was consistent with marijuana. It later determined that the small plastic bag contained one and one half ounces of suspected marijuana.
Shortly thereafter, Officer Chamberlain placed Mr. Adams under arrest and transported him to Thibodaux Police Department where he was booked for simple possession of marijuana and improper lane use. Mr. Adams was later released after the booking procedure.
