Jimmy De Odell is back in Hopkins County Jail after a Hopkins County Deputy made a traffic stop on the 2008 Chevrolet pickup he was driving. It was found the he was within 696 feet from the place of employment of the victim of his August 8, 2017 stalking charge. He was in violation of the protective order than had been issued at that time.
During an inventory of the vehicle a pair of brass knuckles was found.
Odell is now charged with Possession of a Prohibited Weapon and Violation of Bond/Protective order.
In July, Hopkins County Deputies responded to a disturbance on CR 2335 Monday evening around 6 p.m. where they found Odell, 59, had knowingly pulled a trailer which held another individual. That individual had fallen inside the trailer. Odell was arrested for simple assault. However, the arresting officer noted bruxism, a clinching of the jaw muscles which is associated with methamphetamine use. The deputy was given consent to search Odell’s residence by the other person who is also an occupant of the residence. In the bedroom of the residence shared by both parties, 4.68-grams of methamphetamine were found.
