Blountville couple found passed out with child in car face multiple charges

BLOUNTVILLE — A Blountville couple have been arrested after police found them apparently passed out in a car while a small child slept in the backseat.

According to the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office, Jamie Phelps, 36, and Tonya Phelps, 37, both of 242 Rhea Ave., were arrested on attempted child neglect and other charges after police located them in their car at approximately 7 a.m. Thursday.

A Friday afternoon news release states an inventory of the vehicle yielded a 9mm pistol that had been reported stolen earlier this week, along with other unspecified property that had been stolen from a car parked on Birch Street on Tuesday night.
