Two people are facing charges in Fentress County following an incident yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, June 27, 2017). Authorities were notified that 20-year-old Christopher Overholt of Clarkrange allegedly ate “magic mushrooms” or shrooms while with a group of people and was lost in the area of Wilder. Others with Overholt were identified by officers as 21-year-old Donald Douglas of Grimsley, 21-year-old Bradley Welch of Cookeville and 20-year-old Sommer Downes of Grimsley. Deputies responded to where the subjects had left their vehicle at the end of East Obey Lane in Wilder. Officers were able to find the subjects and escorted them back to where their vehicle was parked. Fentress County EMA responded to the scene to help with transportation after the subjects were found. All subjects allegedly admitted to taking 2.8 grams of magic mushrooms, a schedule I drug. Donald Douglas and Christopher Overholt were transported by the Overton County Ambulance Service to Tennova Hospital in Jamestown for medical care. Sommer Downes and Bradley Welch refused medical treatment. Downes and Welch were both arrested and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Officers say the investigation is ongoing and other charges are pending.
