On Sunday, November 18, 2018, Knox County Deputy Sam Mullins developed information that a man with a large amount of crystal methamphetamine was at a residence on KY 1629 in the Park Hill area of Corbin. The man was reportedly from out of state and driving a rental vehicle. Around 10:45am Monday, November 19, 2018, the Knox County Sheriff’s Department was in the Park Hill area attempting to locate the man when a red Toyota sports car with a Tennessee license plate was observed driving suspiciously through the Arby’s drive thru. While attempting to make a traffic stop, a vehicular pursuit began on KY 1629, which led to the driver crashing through a private drive gate, striking a parked vehicle. This incident led to a foot pursuit into the Pine Hill Cemetery. The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Marlon Johnson of Nashville, was arrested a short time later. He was in possession of a backpack containing over two pounds of crystal methamphetamine and a loaded handgun was found inside the vehicle. Johnson was charged with trafficking in controlled substance, resisting arrest, and several other charges. He was lodged in the Knox County Detention Center.
