The father of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days star Nicole Nafziger continues to struggle, and once again finds himself in jail in Florida.
Tyler Nafziger was arrested after a traffic stop on November 15. He was eventually charged with felony cocaine possession, felony possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
The police report from the arrest reveals that Tyler was driving a Pontiac G6 in Bradenton, Florida when he was pulled over “for an equipment violation, as well as the driver not being able to maintain its lane and driving up onto the curb multiple times.”
The officer approached the vehicle on the passenger side and observed the male passenger “moving around” with his “hands between his legs.” The officer ordered the driver, Tyler Nafziger, to shut the vehicle off and get out.
As Tyler exited the car, “a dark blue glass smoking device fell onto the asphalt and broke into multiple pieces.” The officer ran Tyler’s information through dispatch and was informed that there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest in another Florida county. (Checking records in the other county, a warrant was issued for Tyler’s arrest due to a probation violation on November 9.)
The officer conducted a search of the vehicle. From the arrest report:
I located a glass crack stem, with a residual amount of burnt residue on it, a plastic tubular container containing multiple small white rocks; consistent with what I know through training and experience to be crack cocaine. A subsequent test of said substance ultimately tested positive to be crack cocaine, using a BPD issued field test kit and had a weight of 1g.
While further conducting a search of the defendants property, I located (1) one blue round pill stamped with the letter M on one side and the number thirty (30) on the other, located in his wallet and not in its prescription bottle. Using www.drugs.com to identify the pill, I discovered that the pill was a Oxycodone pill; which the defendant previously admitted to taking one earlier.
Tyler entered a plea of not guilty and is scheduled for arraignment on December 10. He is currently listed as being in custody and on hold — most likely due to the outstanding warrant.
