A Wise County man is now facing drug charges after interfering with a police situation last week.
Pound Police Chief Tony Baker says two officers responded to a call at the Wildcat Gas Station in Pound over an individual who borrowed someone else's car and hadn't returned it yet. The case was resolved without charges. However, while officers were speaking with the individual, 44 year old Danny Lee Mullins Jr. exited the gas station and proceeded to attempt to interfere in the discussion between the officers and individual. The officer asked Mullins not to interfere with police business, but Mullins went back inside the business and called 911, reporting to Wise County Central Dispatch “there were two knucklehead cops that didn't know what they were doing, and that he was a lawyer and knew the law better than the police.”
Central Dispatch notified the officers that Mullins had two outstanding warrants and they placed Mullins under arrest. Once in custody, a search of Mullin's person revealed a substance believed to be methamphetamine, along with needles and a spoon.
Mullins was charged with possession. The Virginia Bar Association website show no records of a Danny Lee Mullins, Jr. possessing a license to practice law.
Baker says Mullins considers himself a self-proclaimed sovereign citizen.
