Francis father and son arrest
A man who was reported to be passed out in a vehicle on Highway 411 last week, on Wednesday was charged with a new offense. Cocke County Deputy Logan Starritt said when he arrived on the scene last Saturday, he found Derrek Francis, 33, of Sevierville, passed out in the Dodge SUV. His two year-old daughter was on the back seat. EMS took Francis to the Newport Medical Center where he was admitted, reportedly for treatment of a methadone and oxycodone overdose. Both Francis and his father, Darrell Francis who was lying beside the auto, have been charged with child endangerment in connection with the child found in the auto. Other charges were filed against Darrell Francis last week. The Department of Children's Services also was asked to do an investigation into the incident. Derrek Francis reportedly was the target of an earlier child neglect investigation by the state agency.
