Men Caught Giving Dancer Meth in Phoenix, AZ

by on February 7, 2014

Vernon Henry and Michael Clawson have a habit of being arrested on drug charges. Six weeks after having allegedly been found with illegal drugs on them, the pair was reportedly caught on camera giving a dancer a bag of meth on the patio of Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club in Phoenix, AZ.

The dancer, who apparently did not want a bag of meth, alerted her manager who then got the police involved. After arriving on the scene, an officer asked Clawson to submit to a search, which he agreed to. Another bag of meth was allegedly found in a box of small cigars in Clawson’s pocket.

Clawson and Henry both denied knowing anything about either baggie of drugs; however, both were booked on drug charges.

Charges for Meth in Phoenix, AZ

In Arizona, meth crimes are taken very seriously, and such charges come with more severe penalties than those reserved for crimes involving marijuana or cocaine.

A person found possessing any amount of meth will likely be charged with a class 4 felony in Arizona and, unlike other drug charges, the charge may not be reduced to a misdemeanor nor is probation available even for a first offense.

Furthermore, a minimum 5 year prison and a minimum $1,000 fine is often given to first offenders found possessing, distributing, manufacturing, or otherwise interacting with meth in Arizona. Penalties for meth crimes increase significantly with each subsequent conviction.
