CLAYTON - A 38-year-old Lakemont man faces a bevy of charges after his Sept. 4 arrest by the Georgia State Patrol.

Gregory Dale Gipson is charged with illegal possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, possession and use of drug-related objects, DUI-alcohol, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, failure to dim headlights, defective tail light, driving within the gore, driving on the wrong side of the road and failure to obey a stop sign.

A state patrol incident report states that Trooper Travis Sanders was requested to respond to The Home Depot on Highway 441 South at 10:22 p.m.Sept. 3 to assist the Rabun County Sheriff's Office with a DUI investigation.

At the scene, Sanders met with Sgt. Jeffrey Davis and Deputy Victoria Hopper. Davis told the trooper he saw a 2008 Chevrolet utility truck traveling north on Highway 441 in the southbound lanes. Davis and Hopper said they saw the truck "traveling in a very reckless manner without regard for other vehicles on the road," the report states. Just before reaching The Home Depot, Davis said, the vehicle changed over to the correct lanes but traveled through the gore of a nearby entrance road.

Sanders identified the driver as Gipson. The trooper noticed that Gipson "was acting very erratically and was unable to stand still" while he "repeatedly clenched his fist while using numerous profane and obscene words," the report states. Because Gipson was so impaired and unsteady on his feet, he was unable to complete roadside sobriety tests.

According to the report, Gipson consented to a state-administered blood test but began to resist arrest when Sanders tried to cuff him. The deputies helped Sanders put Gipson in his patrol car. On the way to Mountain Lakes Medical Center, Gipson fell asleep. Sanders GIPSONreported that when he woke Gipson, he refused to get out of the car.

The Rabun County Detention Center needed Gipson to be medically cleared because of his level of intoxication. Gipson was removed from the car and carried into the hospital. As Gipson became combative, the trooper noticed indications that Gipson had sniffed a "caustic substance," the report states. Gipson was kept in the hospital for a number of hours before he was taken to the jail.

On Tuesday, he was no longer listed among the inmates at the detention center.
