A man was taken to jail for several charges after a defective headlight caught the attention of patrol deputies. On June 12, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Deputy Curtis Elkins was in the area of State Highway 82 and Indian Road as a vehicle with a bad headlight passed him. Elkins conducted a traffic stop, and the driver, Bodevin Ezell, advised his driver’s license was suspended and that he didn’t have insurance on the vehicle. Dispatch informed Elkins that he had a warrant and the plate information came back to a Nissan Altima. Deputy Kevin McFarland checked the vehicles VIN number and dispatch advised the plate expired in 2013. Elkins told the driver to exit the vehicle and patted him. Ezell admitted he drank several hours before the traffic stop. Elkins searched the vehicle, where he found an open can of beer on the floorboard in the backseat. Ezell was taken to jail and booked for driving under suspension, transporting an open container, no insurance, bogus tag, taxes due state, and the warrant.
