Off the Wall News: He is the eggman, goo goo goo joob

Jonathan W. Waugh

A DUI suspect who arrived at Walmart in a van riding on two rims — and a third wheel with a flat tire — allegedly shelled out a paltry excuse to Kingsport police: He needed eggs.

At approximately 7 a.m. Wednesday, an employee of the West Stone Drive store alerted authorities to the incident. According to a Kingsport Police Department arrest report, officers arrived to find Jonathan W. Waugh, 60, of 587 N. Holston River Drive, sitting in a van in the parking lot.

Police noted the passenger rear tire of the van was flat, while both front wheels were completely absent of tires, thus riding on the rims. Upon being interviewed, Waugh allegedly spoke with slurred speech and admitted to drinking the previous night.

A set of "scuff marks" then led officers through the Walmart parking lot and to the adjacent Lowe's. On the other side of Lowe's, at the entrance from Granby Road, they located a telephone line box that was knocked down and busted, along with one of the front tires from Waugh's van.
