Local man facing firearms, moonshine violations

Posted: 4:39 PM Mar 14, 2008

(WVLT) A Cocke County man is now facing federal firearms and moonshine violations.

61 year old Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton of Parrotsville is charged in a four count complaint with three federal charges, related to the making, possessing and selling of untaxed whiskey.

Sutton also faces one charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

If convicted, Sutton faces up to ten years in federal prison on the firearms count and five years for each of the moonshining counts.

He faces up to a $250,000 fine on each count.

Sutton will be back in court, March 28th for a preliminary hearing.

I just CAN'T believe they finally arrested ol' Popcorn. He made a video a few years ago about moonshining. Most interesting thing you ever watched. He walked you through it, step by step.

This is a danged tradion here, and I know the "law" ain't got nothing else to do (like arrest illegal aliens carrying pounds of cocaine)!!!! Or child molestors!!!

Moonshing, BTW, is still an art up in these parts.

My Grandaddy was a moonshiner. It's in the blood here, even though they sell regular liquor now.

Dang, can't believe they got old Popcorn.

He'll get out of it, he always does.

Must be election time (grin).

My uncles and dad made moonshine for years. My dad got out of it, he basically just helped out (carrying crates, etc). This was back in the 60s.

One of my uncles made it till the day he died in 1997. My cousin told me about 2 years ago that he made it in the little storage shack right next to the house. I was astounded, I thought he at least went up in the woods! This is in Franklin Country, VA, the moonshine capital of the world.

Another uncle of mine was basically kicked out of the state of VA decades ago for moonshining. He's lived in CA ever since.

My county was semi-dry - beer only and there used to be a couple of guys that would sell whiskey to practically anone who came by. I used to buy it when I was 16. Anyway, about 4 months before EVERY county election, they would bust one or the other for bootlegging whiskey. I think the worst sentence any of them ever got was a $500 fine.

Darnit! I hope ole Popcorn gets off, with all his experience I’ll bet he makes real good moonshine. We can’t have men with talent like that in jail! :-)

I know, this is just awful.

My grandpa made it, my Daddy ran it in one of those souped up cars that sounded like an airplane (according to my Mama) in the 1950s.

Most people don’t realize moonshine runners in these parts spawned NASCAR. Everybody here at Walmart has a NASCAR hat on with the number of the BIG number one. Since I am not a NASCAR fan, I forget the number.

Anyhow, old Popcorn is a legend up here. They ought to leave him alone.

I have only had moonshine once. It was produced by a local old timer who very much looked like a moonshiner.

Since I did not want to go blind, I asked him what he did about fusel oil. He gave a detailed 15 minute lecture on distillation techniques. He obviously knew what he was doing.

The stuff was pretty good.

Robert Mitchum starred in the movie "Thunder Road" and I believe it was made in the 50's. He ran moonshine in a hopped up car, it was a good movie.

TC,JZMO

Well, since you appreciate fine art, like moonshining, I’ll tell you this story. But, if the law ever comes for me, I’ll deny it.

Several years ago, many fine, cultered businessmen from across the SE U.S. hired fishing guides on the S. Holston River, a blue ribbon trout fishery in upper East Tennessee, to take them in pursuit of the big brown trout in the river.

After a long day of floating this beautiful river, with big limestone bluffs, gorgeous fawna, and lots of wildlife, the guides would offer their Yankee hosts an initiation ceremony.

They’d all pull up in slack water and toast the day; a beautiful day in God’s country, by passing around a fruit jar filled with the smoothest liquor you ever sipped. It was the best peach moonshine made.

I have spent a long day bending my arm in search of these beautiful, aggressive creatures (the trout, not the fishing guides).

I have watched a fog envelope the river valley, crawl towards me and chill me to the bone, and this brew warmed my innards, settled the score with every fish that got away, convinced me they’d be there next time.

Now, there ain’t a darned thing wrong with that!!!

That’s an excellent way to spend a day, or two, or preferably ten. LOL!

Out West here moonshine is not real available but Jack Daniels is, it’s a tolerable substitute. At least it was in my younger days. :)

You’re probably thinking about the folks that get paid minimum wages to act like hillbillies at Dollywood theme park (grin) and the like.

They are hillbillies too, but I doubt any of them know how to make moonshine.

No, old Popcorn is up near Dell Rio, up in the mountains where they don’t have taffy making and sovenir shops — where they still run hounds for bear and ‘coons, and still show up for Church and “All Day Singing and Dinner on the Ground.”

When they ain’t making moonshine and betting on those fighting roosters.

Those folks up there are pretty independent, they don’t pay much attention to laws and the stock market!!!

"You’re probably thinking about the folks that get paid minimum wages to act like hillbillies at Dollywood theme park (grin) and the like."

Not really. A few years ago I 'got wind' - in passing - that Popcorn was, on occasion, in and out of Maggie. Just sayin..

"They are hillbillies too, but I doubt any of them know how to make moonshine."

Oh..I don't know (grin). I've "heard" that some old folk in Maggie know how to make it. They're just to old to do that kind of work anymore.

"No, old Popcorn is up near Dell Rio, up in the mountains where they don’t have taffy making and sovenir shops — where they still run hounds for bear and ‘coons, and still show up for Church and “All Day Singing and Dinner on the Ground.”"

Hell I like taffy. The souvenir shops I can do without. In the 'outlying areas' (Plott Balsams, High Top, Soco etc.) around Maggie, young'ns still hunt coon, bear, hog, and possum (with dogs) on a regular basis. And yes all day church meetins' and dinners still occur as needed.

"When they ain’t making moonshine and betting on those fighting roosters."

Old traditions are a good thing.

"Those folks up there are pretty independent, they don’t pay much attention to laws and the stock market!!!'

That's true. I have kin (near and distant) in Macon, Jackson, Haywood, Madison, Henderson, and Buncombe Counties of North Carolina. I know exactly how a lot of mountain folk are and how they can be.

LOL.

It doesn’t get any more hillbilly than Madison County.

Up until three years ago I lived in Greene County, on the border with Madison County, N.C. Madison County definitely has a reputation for moonshining and even a few longstanding feuds.

I thought Maggie Valley had been pretty much overrun by folks from other states, but I’m sure there are still natives.

No doubt Popcorn has roots up in that area too. But I think he lives in Cocke County, which is the equivilent of Madison County N.C. He probably sells his ‘shine over there too.

Thing is, Popcorn has been open about it for years. One of his kinfolks from Cocke County showed me a video he made about making moonshine. It was hilarious to watch, especially his hillbilly accent.

Did you see the photos of Popcorn posted below in this thread?

SO good to hear from you. I thought you were sick, or mad at me for accidentally getting you on the garden ping list (grin).

You doing okay?

Yes, they should leave this poor old man alone, let him make his moonshine. He doesn’t hurt anyone, and is part of the local color here.

Too bad the authorities don’t spend their resources going after the real criminals, like the ones pasted below, who recently made headlines here:

Report: OR Man Sentenced For Incest

According to the News-Sentinel, a 64-year-old Oak Ridge man was sentenced to three years in prison resulting from his plea earlier this year to charges that he molested his then-14-year-old daughter. The man, whose identity is being withheld to protect his victim, will serve 30 days in jail at which time he could be eligible for release. The man will have to register as a sex offender, undergo therapy and even if he is released early, will have to spend the rest of his sentence on supervised probation. The paper reports that he expressed remorse over his actions in March of 2005 and said that he would be willing to undergo therapy.

Correction Officer’s Arrest For Marijuana Explained By Police

Trooper Searched

The Trunk Of Car

When The Riddles

Seemed ‘Nervous’

By BILL JONES

Staff Writer

A Louisiana State Police public information officer released details Friday concerning how his agency came to charge a Greene County Detention Center corrections officer and his brother last Sunday with possessing marijuana with intent to deliver it.

During a telephone interview with The Greeneville Sun from Lake Charles, La., Senior Trooper Stephen LaFargue, a spokesman for LSP’s Troop D, said Greene County Corrections Officer Jason Riddle, 27, was arrested with his brother, Charles Bradley Riddle, 33, about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, March 9, after Trooper Steven Vincent stopped their Chevrolet Cobalt rental car near mile post 55 on Interstate 10 in Jefferson Davis Parish, La.

Senior Trooper LaFargue said Trooper Vincent stopped the car, which was being driven by Charles Bradley Riddle, after seeing the eastbound vehicle swerve abruptly and “cross the fog line” of the road.

When Trooper Vincent approached the car, according to LaFargue, he noticed that both Riddle brothers appeared “nervous.”

While speaking with the Riddle brothers, Trooper Vincent became suspicious when he asked the brothers where they had been and where they were going.

“Their stories didn’t add up,” LaFargue said.

The Riddle brothers, LaFargue said, claimed to have traveled to a number of cities, including Houston and Dallas, and Panama City, Fla., plus the state of Illinois on the same trip.

LaFargue said the brothers said they had been applying for jobs with various law-enforcement agencies, but were unable to name any of the agencies with which they had filed applications.

Trooper Vincent obtained verbal approval to search the car occupied by the Riddle brothers, Trooper LaFargue said.

When Trooper Vincent opened the rental car’s trunk, he noticed the odor of marijuana, LaFargue said.

Inside a blue duffel bag in the trunk was a white plastic trash bag that contained several smaller plastic bags that each contained a substance believed to be marijuana.

“It weighed out to about seven pound,” LaFargue said.

LaFargue said Interstate 10 is a major drug transportation route from Houston, which he described as a “source city” for illegal drugs.

Case’s Background

Jason Riddle had been employed as a corrections officer at the Greene County Detention Center for approximately three years prior to his arrest in Louisiana, Sheriff Steve Burns said earlier this week.

“As a result of these charges, his employment was immediately terminated,” the sheriff said. “We’re disappointed,” the sheriff said. “You can’t be involved in that kind of activity and work for us.”

Jefferson Davis Parish is located in southwest Louisiana. The county seat is the town of Jennings, off Interstate 10 between the city of Lafayette to the east and the city of Lake Charles to the west, not far from the Louisiana-Texas state line.

I lived in Greene County, bordering Cocke County, until three years ago. My ancestors settled that area in the 1780s.

Our homestead is at the foot of the Mountains, which is now part of the Cherokee National Forest. It’s an interesting area, lots of history, including the birthplace of Davy Crockett, which is in the same area as the homestead.

The folks there are “memorable,” to say the least.

Maggie Valley is a great place to visit and play golf. Maybe I’ll look old Popcorn up on my next trip.

The Crappie are beginning to wake up. The spawn should be in full swing in another ten days or so. The 12 inch minimum size poses no problem for the Arkabutla, Sardis and Enid fishermen and fisher persons like girlangler. I’ll be taking the boat out of hibernation next weekend.

Cocke County may be the wildest county in Tennessee.

Johnson and Pickett and Polk and Grundy and Hancock counties too....TN has many wild counties settled over 200 years ago by mainly Orange Scots Irish folks who have been doing things their way a long long time and don’t cotton so much to outsiders.

Hillbilly is reckoned to be to be from William of Orange ..protestant Scots-Irish overlord English king ...hence the “billy” part and hill speaks for itself

I live in simply knobby Nashville but drive to Boone NC almost monthly......TN hillbilles are more numerous than NC variety and more “culiar”, but SW Virginia and deep SE KY may be the spiritual home though some think NE GA is too....West Virginia is the most total hillbilly state maybe.

I get on fine with them but they are very different from flatland Southerners.....much more clannish and tight lipped.

Peach is the best moonshine in my view btw.

I would not want a bunch of hillbillies on my ass.

Just got my still cranked up and now ready for bed.

Yes, I know them crappie are ready. My Uncle (we have discussed him) the liberal, very nice OR contractor, called me the other day and invited me to accompany him to Weiss Lake for a crappiethon, a contest.

My sister and her hubby (I sent you pics of their catches and crappie sweeping technique) go to Weiss several times a year, and turns out the uncle does too. So, we are planning to all meet and have a showdown. Before and after sundown (grin).

I warned him the half of me without his roots/bloodline would kick his butt catching crappie, and he laughed, said “We’ll see.”

He’s my daddy’s brother, and I know better than to pass up a chance to spend some quality time on the water with him — he might not be around long, and my heart tells me not to waste time.

I’m really looking forward to it. He monitors water temps, knows when it is just right. Plus, he told me about one of his secret crappie techniques. Said he’d call and we’ll jump in the car on short notice and go.

I won’t tell you about the “super secret” special technique he told me, on this post. But, if you’ll remind me, I’ll send you a freepmail about it. It is amazing, down right brilliant, a way to pinpoint the fish when they are bunched up, a way other crappie anglers can’t detect and move onto your honey hole and fish it out.

"It doesn’t get any more hillbilly than Madison County."

LOL, you're right. There are good folk up there though. A lot of them are cordial and polite just to the point of murder - if ya cross 'em the wrong way . (chuckle)

"Up until three years ago I lived in Greene County, on the border with Madison County, N.C."

You were lucky to live in part of God's country.

"Madison County definitely has a reputation for moonshining and even a few longstanding feuds."

LOL. Yup, there are some die-hard, hard headed people up there. They don't forget very easily.

"I thought Maggie Valley had been pretty much overrun by folks from other states, but I’m sure there are still natives."

Sadly, as you well know; the outsiders, half-backs, and flat-landers - not to mention illegals are trying their damndest to overrun the place. But the old culture still remains - at least for now.

"No doubt Popcorn has roots up in that area too. But I think he lives in Cocke County, which is the equivilent of Madison County N.C. He probably sells his ‘shine over there too.'

Hmm..could be. (grin)

"Thing is, Popcorn has been open about it for years. One of his kinfolks from Cocke County showed me a video he made about making moonshine. It was hilarious to watch, especially his hillbilly accent."

LOL, I'd like to see that video.

"Did you see the photos of Popcorn posted below in this thread?"

I've seen his picture before. Also, I watched a CMT program - I believe it was last year - that documented the moonshine 'business'. Popcorn was prominently featured in the program. It was an interesting.

My grandaddy used to chase bootleggers during Prohibition. Irony that what ended his motorcycle patrolling was a drunk driver hitting him.
