"A Savannah doctor was charged with drug possession Feb. 1 after a traffic stop turned up some marijuana and a pipe, according to a Savannah-Chatham police report.

Also, a Chatham County Sheriff’s Deputy was reprimanded after he removed the doctor’s mug shot from the jail website, the department announced.

At 8:30 p.m. a metro police officer working undercover smelled marijuana coming from a 2007 BMW M6 heading south on Reynolds Street. A uniformed officer stopped the BMW at 63rd Street and Reynolds and also smelled marijuana smoke, the report stated.

The driver of the vehicle, 44-year-old Michael Jackson , gave officers permission to search the car. Inside, they found two white medicine bottles holding a green leafy substance. The search also turned up a wooden pipe, the report stated.

A test of the substance came back positive for marijuana, the report stated.

Jackson was charged with possession of a drug-related object and possession of marijuana, first offense and booked into the Chatham County jail. He was released on bond the next day, jail records show.

A search revealed Jackson is an obstetrician affiliated with the St. Joseph/Candler Health System. Hospital spokesman Scott Larson said the incident is under review by a group of medical staff independent of the system. Larson also said most doctors are not directly employed by the system.

Memorial University Medical Center spokeswoman Dina Stoneking said Jackson was not employed by the hospital. Other details of his affiliation were not immediately known, Stoneking said.

Chatham County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Michelle Gavin said a deputy asked another employee to remove Jackson’s mug shot from public view on the department’s website. The department then received calls asking why the mug shot had vanished, Gavin said.

The online photo returned to the website by Feb. 3 and remained there for the duration of a 72-hour period that the arrests are made public online, she said.

The deputy, whose name was withheld, was reprimanded, she said.
Gavin said the incident was isolated, but some suspects booked into the jail who also are involved in certain police investigations are not posted. Deputies keep a log of those mug shots and later post them once an investigation has been completed, she said.

A message left at Jackson’s home and office was not returned."

Poor guy....ruined his name forever now with an article and picture like that. Typical BS reporting....I am sure they don't have a news article for everyone who is caught with a small amount of pot. By the way, the cops were looking for anything to bust him I am sure.

An undercover cop smelled marijuana that was in contaiers, from a car while it was driving? Either the cop is friggin Lassie or they were looking for something to bust him on.

I believe he smelled the smoke coming from the car...he must have been puffing down at the time.
Which is totally believable, because I have been driving before and all of a sudden, smelled weed and it was coming from the car ahead of me.

It sounds like it was a routine traffic stop and the officer smelled the marijuana when pulled over. It seems like a waste of time and government money to take someone to jail for possession of a small amount of marijuana and a pipe. I didn't read the article but if they are talking medicine bottles that any prescription medicine comes in, I doubt it was a substantial amount to be considered a dealer. It sucks that a doctor's name will be ruined over an amount that would just be a ticket or dismissed in some of the more liberal states but when you are in a position to be held at a higher standard in the public eye, you shouldn't be driving around smoking marijuana. Just not very smart!!!!!!

You wouldn't want a stoned doctor operating on you, any more than you'd want Cheech and Chong doing a brake job on your M6.

lol nice pic. But at least he wasn't caught doing an operation :) I can understand more if that was the case....maybe he needed to relax after a hard day's work at home. Also if he was driving stoned then that's bad too lol.

disclaimer: I don't smoke, just saying.... ouich

Cant believe they actually brought him to jail, that's ridiculous. Clearly they were looking to screw this guy...love when I get pulled over for a "routine traffic stop" and after looking for every reason in the world to give me something, including searching for my car NO reason at all, they tell me to slow it down a little, it sounded like I was going a little fast. It's really pathetic how jealous one people can be

I wouldn't want a drunk one operating on me either and that's legal! I just think that if a doctor was caught drinking and driving it probably wouldn't have made such headlines.

Cheech: "Hey man, how's my driving?"

Chong "I think we're parked, man."
