A Lafayette County man was arrested January 18 after he was pulled over for a traffic stop.

According to police, a plain clothes deputy with the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department made a traffic stop on a man driving a Gold Wing motorcycle for a traffic violation in Oxford.

The deputy was joined by a backup officer with the Oxford Police Department.

Officers identified the suspect as Jerami Tubbs, who was known by deputies from previous encounters. Tubbs was known to be a convicted felon and known to carry weapons.

Because of this information, the officer told Tubbs he was going to pat him down before continuing with the traffic stop.

The suspect refused and became argumentative. Deputies said he was acting out of character from past experiences.

He pushed the deputy and tried to run. The deputy grabbed the suspect and they both fell to the ground. During the struggle, a concealed firearm fell from Tubb’s waist onto the ground.

Officers finally gained control of Tubs and took him into custody.

They searched his motorcycle and found a large quantity of, what is believed to be methamphetamine.

Tubbs was charged with speeding, no turn signal, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and possession of a schedule II (meth) with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm.

His bond has been revoked by the court for previously being out on bond for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a controlled substance.
