    "Picture perfect" weather expected for Easter Sunday

    Today’s forecast is just about “picture perfect”. We will see plenty of sunshine, light wind, low relative humidity values and highs right about where we should be for this time of year, so please enjoy it! The area of high pressure giving us this nice day will slowly drift eastward on Monday, but we should still see a lot of sunshine and temperatures in the low-mid 70s. It doesn’t last though as a cold front pushes into the area on Tuesday producing widespread showers and even a few thunder...More >>

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A former Anderson County Sheriff's Office investigator accused of carrying a loaded gun while drunk was arrested July 25 in Knoxville.

Danny Edward Bowie, of Andersonville, was taken into custody in the parking lot of Kroger on Clinton Highway. He's charged with public intoxication and handgun possession while drunk or on a controlled substance.

According to a court affidavit, an officer who responded to a public intoxication complaint saw Bowie walking unsteadily in the parking lot. He also allegedly had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.

The affidavit says the officer saw the butt of a weapon in the rear pocket of Bowie's shorts when he asked to see his ID. The gun turned out to be a Springfield Armory XP40. It was loaded with nine rounds and one in the chamber.

The sheriff's office says it was Bowie's personal handgun.

Bowie was booked into the Knox County Jail on a $200 bond. He's scheduled to be in court on August 2.

Officials say Bowie resigned from the sheriff's office on July 27. He worked for the department for 18 years without any previous problems.
