Default Drug Bust at Memphis in May

Tent Busted with Drugs at BBQ Fest

Memphis, Tn - There was a major drug bust at Tom Lee Park this weekend.

Three members of Shotwell Smoker's were arrested after deputies found several back packs filled with drugs at Barbecue Fest. Investigators say the team is believed to be selling drugs out of their tent.

Barbecue Fest is known for its party almost as its known for its pork, and Memphis in May encourages the celebration.

"We don't do this just for the seriousness of the competition, we do it for the celebrating of Memphis," says Diane Hampton, President of Memphis in May. "So we expect people to have a good time. We also expect them to play by the rules."

But one team broke the rules this weekend.

Roy Hanes, Michael Happ, and James Innocenti were arrested on possession and distribution charges. Happ was also charged with possession of a fire arm while committing a felony. He had a loaded glock in the tent.

"One of the deputies walked in, smelled marijuana, asked permission to see of they could go inside the booth," says Steve Shular, spokesperson for the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. "They did and that's what led them to the discovery."

Deputies found nearly 100 prescription pills, including Xanax, hydrocodone, morphine, oxycodone and other varieties. They found about 2 ounces of marijuana, a small amount of cocaine, drug paraphernalia, and nearly $6,000 in cash.

"Based on the large variety of drugs and the fact there was a large amount of cash that was also found on the person and a couple hundred found on another, the charges support there could have been some dealing and distributing going on there," says Shular.

Memphis in May officials and volunteers who worked directly with the team tell Fox13 no one had any idea what was going on at booth S-200.

"It's totally unacceptable, it's against our rules, team rules, it's against the rules for the public," says Hampton. "So obviously we're very disappointed the team would choose to behave this way."

Memphis in May plans to send a message that this behavior is not and will not be tolerated.

"This team had been very involved for several years in the competition," says Hampton. "And we really had not had any problems with them. Its safe to say this will be the last year they compete."

All three men bonded out of jail on bonds ranging from $30,000 to $50,000.

No other arrests were made during Barbecue Fest this weekend.

I guess that some competitor's secret ingredients are secret for a reason.

Really, with the emphasis on "partying" at events, is anyone surprised?

I guess maybe I'm a prude, but I don't find this at all funny. The last thing I want to worry about is some crazed lunatic hillbilly who is hopped up on coke and carrying a gun. A lot of people bring their families, including young children and impressionable teens, to competitions. I like a good party just as much as anyone else, but this type of behavior is a safety threat to the public and the other teams.

I agree with you, I don't find it funny either. It just puts a tarnish on the competition. Someone had to be buying the stuff. I am not saying other teams were, but it will be something people will not forget about. It ruins the good that we do in BBQ for other things and causes.

They must have been under the influence, or practicing for Hempfest?

There are no BBQ vendors-they should be a shoo-in with their rap sheet!
