Edinburgh man faces charges in drug arrest

An Edinburgh man was arrested after police said he had methamphetamine and other drugs and then fought with officers, who eventually used a Taser on him.

Christopher Starnes, 43, was arrested on charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a legend drug, trafficking a legend drug into a penal facility, obstruction of justice, battery on law enforcement, battery by bodily fluid on law enforcement, possession of marijuana and resisting law enforcement.

Edinburgh police received a tip that Starnes had multiple bags of methamphetamine. Police stopped the truck he was riding in near U.S. 31 and State Road 252. A police dog sniffed around the truck and identified the smell of drugs, the police report said.
