An armed Hermitage man has been arrested after drugs were found following an alleged act of road rage, and police said a two-year-old child was also in the vehicle.

Those with the Lebanon Police Department said the incident was first called in to authorities around 11:26 a.m. Saturday.

Reports stated the armed man, later identified as 27-year-old Edwin Secoy Reeves, was part of an act of road rage on Interstate 40 near the Highway 109 exit.

Reeves’ vehicle was spotted after officers recognized it from its description. They stopped Reeves at a gas station on Sparta Pike.

Police said a loaded 9mm pistol was found in Reeves’ waistband.

Reeves consented to a search and admitted to having a small amount of marijuana in a backpack in his trunk.

Authorities confirmed they found about a fourth of an ounce of marijuana at first in the backpack. However, they added there was a separate part of the backpack containing a bag with almost two ounces of marijuana, along with a loaded Uzi pistol.

Also, officials found $4370 in bundled cash, as well as $811 in Reeves’ pocket.

Because a two-year-old child was with him in the vehicle, Reeves has been charged with reckless endangerment of a minor.

Reeves was taken into custody and also charged with felony drug charges and felony weapons charges.
