     On 08-02-2014, a Jackson County Sheriff's Deputy responded to a report of a reckless driver traveling west on Hwy 2, from Campbellton toward Graceville. The vehicle reportedly ran a motorist off of the roadway and upon arriving in the area, the Deputy observed a vehicle matching the description parked in the westbound lane of Hwy 2, obstructing traffic. The Deputy made contact with the driver, Stanley Dwayne Marchant and observed that he appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicating substance. It was discovered through further investigation that Marchant's Florida Driver's License was Revoked due to being a “Habitual Traffic Offender”.  Marchant had three prior convictions for Driving while License Revoked/Suspended and three prior convictions for D.U.I. Marchant made several statements that he had ingested “bourbon” and taken three prescription pain pills prior to being stopped. Marchant exited the vehicle but was unable to walk or stand without assistance due to his level of impairment.  Marchant was placed under arrest at that time pending further investigation.  A vehicle inventory was conducted and a partial bottle of “Kentucky Deluxe Whiskey” was located  in the center console, a prescription bottle located under the driver's seat that contained suspected “Crack” Cocaine, and two metal paraphernalia pipes with residue also located under the drivers seat. The vehicle was turned over to a towing company and Marchant was transported to Marianna Police Department where he provided two breath samples on the Intoxilyzer that were in excess of the legal limit. Marchant was then transported to the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await First Appearance.
