Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Dothan police have arrested a soldier on drug possession charges.

The department’s vice division stopped Charles Kalid Segrest, 28, of Slocomb Wednesday after looking into a possible drug case involving a member of the Alabama National Guard.

During their investigation, officers reportedly found LSD, marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Authorities charged Segrest with unlawful possession of a controlled substance (LSD), unlawful possession of a controlled substance (meth), second-degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

State court records show no criminal history for drug-related offenses, but a protection from abuse order was filed against Segrest on behalf of a woman, who will remain unidentified for her privacy.

In her initial motion for a protection from abuse order, the woman alleges that he brandished a pistol while she packed her things and made “comments about there being a bloodbath.” She also states she found meth in his vehicle herself, which led to her being more concerned for her own life.

The protection order was signed into effect on Sept. 6, 2019.

He was released from the Houston County Jail Thursday morning.
