An Athens Police Department traffic stop on Friday resulted in the arrest of a 26-year-old Athens man on a felony drug charge and the arrest of the driver for driving without a valid license.

Erick Charles Sevick was booked for possession of more than one and less then four grams of a controlled substance and 10 existing warrants from Athens Municipal Court. Sevick was released on $10,000 bond for the drug charge and a total of $3,300 for the municipal court offenses, plus fines.

Jessica Danielle Flatt, 31, of Malakoff was charged with DWLI with previous convictions. She was released on Saturday, on $1,500 bond.

APD reports said Officer Wesley Hoover stopped the vehicle at about 1:30 p.m. on South Pinkerton Street. He was assisted by Officer Melissa Goss and Lt. Jason McEntire.

City warrants for Sevick included assault, failure to identify, expired drivers license, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to maintain financial responsibility.

Sevick has been arrested several times in the county, dating back to 2011. He was indicted in March for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance. In 2017, he was arrested in Athens after police chased a car that had been reported stolen from the Metroplex.

In that case, Sevick was booked on charges of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and evading arrest and detention in a motor vehicle.
