Hamblen County Deputy Bradley Gilmer, a narcotics investigator, escaped injury Thursday after he was dragged for about 30 feet down South Cumberland Street by an alleged crystal-meth dealer who was making an impromptu, high-speed getaway, authorities say.

“He’s OK,” Detective Lt. Eric Carson said this morning. “It scared him. He thought he was going to get run over. It was close, it was scary.”

The alleged meth dealer, 53-year-old Lester Mark Bell, was taken into custody a short time later at his sister’s residence on Shields Ferry Road. Two passengers in Bell’s vehicle that he left behind on South Cumberland Street gave the defendant up, according to Carson.

Hamblen County narcotics detectives confiscated two bags of crystal meth with a combined weight of 5 grams, according to Gilmer. Bell tried to hide the crystal meth under a truck, but he later allegedly claimed ownership of the drugs.

Gilmer and Deputy Rabon Coleman stopped Bell’s vehicle at A-51 Auto Sales around 2 p.m. after he allegedly ran a stop sign at the intersection of South Henry Street and West Louise Avenue, according to a warrant, which states Bell gave deputies permission to search.

As the deputies approached the vehicle, Coleman allegedly saw Bell emptying the contents of a hypodermic needle.

Gilmer’s body was partially inside Bell’s vehicle when Bell put the car into drive and fled, according to a warrant. The two passengers, who were already out of the vehicle, were not charged.

Bell faces charges of aggravated assault, possession of meth for resale, evading arrest, reckless endangerment failure to exercise due care and running a stop sign. He remained in the Hamblen County Jail this morning in lieu of $250,000 bond.
