Evan Clay Chapin was booked into Hopkins County jail Wednesday, July 27, 2022, on a warrant for violation of probation which he was on for an unlawful delivery or manufacture with intent to present as a simulated controlled substance, according to jail reports.

The 30-year-old Commerce man was first arrested on the controlled substance charge on Aug. 31, 2020, after his attempt and that of another Commerce resident to sell pills for some quick cash ended up with the pair inadvertently contacting Hopkins County Sheriff Lewis Tatum. Tatum alerted his deputies about the men offering to sell hydrocodone pills for $5 each. Sheriff’s officers arranged to meet up with Chapin on State Highway 11 west at FM 275. When they spotted the described vehicle, the HCSO officers initiated a felony takedown. They found what appeared to be a bundle of not hydrocodone but over-the-counter ibuprofen pills. He allegedly admitted to trying to pass off the nonprescription pills as false narcotic, resulting in his arrest as well as that of the other man with him. Chapin was released later that day on a $5,000 bond on the controlled substance charge.

McCarty was returned to Hopkins County jail a second time on Jan. 13, 2022, for bond forfeiture on that charge, as well as two expired registration and one failure to maintain financial responsibility warrants. He was released Jan. 31, 2022, from jail on the new $10,000 bond set on the charge, according to jail reports.
