Dickinson was arrested by Deputy Weston Watts after a traffic stop for careless driving on Culkin Road, Pace said. When Watts was filling out the ticket, he saw Dickinson drop a bag containing meth from the driver’s side window of his vehicle, Pace said.

Dickinson also was being held for the Mississipi Department of Corrections for a probation violation, Pace said.
