A fourth arrest was made today in as many months at the Edmonson County Courthouse in yet another attempt to cheat a drug test by smuggling someone else's urine in a container. Christopher R. Decker, 42, of Park City, was arrested for the felony charge of Tampering with Physical Evidence.
Sheriff Shane Doyle said that Decker was attending his regularly scheduled visit with his probation officer when he was requested to take a drug test. Doyle said as the officer administered the test, he could easily see that something was off and found a homemade contraption containing someone else's urine inside Decker's pants.
Sheriff Doyle also stated that Decker admitted that he would've tested positive for drugs, and that he had indeed smuggled the false sample in the device, made from a child's applesauce package, which was a "GoGo Squeeze" container.
"I understand why no one wants to test positive for a drug test," said Sheriff Doyle. "However, the consequences for tampering with evidence, which is a felony, are far greater than testing positive for drugs. The easiest way to keep this from happening? Don't use drugs."
Decker was on probation for possession of methamphetamine in Hart County. He was transported and lodged in the Hart County Jail.
