The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department arrested a nude swimmer at Center Hill Lake Sunday after officers saw him trying to get rid of some drugs while getting dressed.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says 30 year old Scotty Farmer of Sykes Road, Hickman was arrested at Long Branch Boat Ramp near Center Hill Dam. Upon the deputies' arrival, Farmer and his friends were found swimming without any clothes on. Farmer came out of the water and put his pants on and the deputy noticed Farmer had thrown something in the lake. The officer quickly recovered the package and found pills believed to be Percocets. Farmer was charged with possession of a schedule III drug (Percocets) and fabricating/tampering with evidence. Bond is set at $6,000 and his court date is September 20th.

Meanwhile, in other cases, 21 year old Jason Sturdivant of Page Drive Smithville was arrested on Friday after officers received a call about a suspicious vehicle on Willis McGinnis Road. Sturdivant had no identification on him and gave his brothers name as his own to the deputy. The officer later learned Sturdivant's real name and charged Sturdivant with driving on a suspended drivers license and criminal impersonation. His bond is set at $3,500 and his court date is September 20th.

50 year old Jane Hall of William Boles Road, Hilham Tennessee was arrested Saturday on Highway 56 North. Hall was seen by a deputy weaving across the centerline. Hall's speech was slurred and after the deputy administered field sobriety tasks, she was arrested for DUI. Bond is set at $1,500 and her court date is September 20th.

Also on Saturday, 35 year old Tammy Currie of Circle Drive Dowelltown was charged with burglary and theft of property under $500.

Sheriff Ray says Currie admitted to the theft. Bond is set at $7,500 and her court date is September 20th.

37 year old Mark Graham of Bright Hill Road, Smithville was arrested Sunday for possession of a schedule II drug (Cocaine) after deputies responded to a call at Grahams' residence.
