A Nashville attorney was arrested Tuesday afternoon on drug charges in a downtown courthouse, Metro Police have reported.
Metro detectives apprehended Reginald Lamont Horton on the sixth floor of the A.A. Birch Building, where he was attending a trial.
"Nashville attorney Reggie Horton was arrested this afternoon by Metro detectives in regard to a grand jury indictment charging multiple counts, primarily drug offenses," said Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron. "That is all I can say right now."
Information from the Sheriff's Department shows that Horton faces 17 different charges, including cocaine and marijuana possession, money laundering and property theft. Bond is set at $150,000.
According to police, Horton has eight prior offenses, all for driving without a license or with a suspended license. All were citations of arrest, meaning Horton was ordered to turn himself in.
A sole practitioner, Horton appears to have ties to Nashville’s hip-hop music scene. He is listed as the contact for business inquiries on the MySpace page for Lil’ Clyde , an unsigned local artist.
Horton is listed in Vanderbilt University's alumni database as a 2005 law school graduate.
