State House Candidate Cited for Pot Possession, Driving with Suspended License
In the midst of the campaign, a candidate for State House District 18 seat was cited in the spring for driving with a suspended license and for simple possession.
Joshua Gregory, a Democrat candidate for the seat currently held by Martin Daniel, was pulled over May 9 at 2:25 a.m. for not having functioning taillights, but was found to have a suspended license and 5.6 grams, or .19 ounces, of marijuana, according to court records.
Gregory could not immediately be reached for comment. He filed his nominating petition to run for office March 27.
He is a computer technician at Austin-East Magnet High School and an assistant coach in various sports including football, baseball and basketball, according to Knox County Schools spokesman Abbey Harris.
Gregory is facing Democrat Greg Mackay in the Aug. 2 primary.
Daniel is running for re-election and is the only Republican for the Nov. 6 general election.
Gregory is scheduled to appear in court next month, Aug. 15.
