Jared Thompson, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute meth and who was also involved in a shooting incident, was sentenced on Thursday to 186 months in federal prison. It will be consecutive to a sentence he has in Coffee County.
Thompson appeared before Judge Travis McDonough.
Authorities said an ATF agent accompanied state probation officers to Thompson's home on March 6, 2018, after learning of an incident involving the discharging of a firearm.
Thompson admitted firing the gun during an incident with Justin Corn and others on Feb. 2, 2018.
The ATF agent later checked Thompson's cell phone and found evidence that he had been trafficking in meth with Courtney Underhill, Stephen Cory Bohanan and Corn.
The agent said he learned that Thompson and Corn had traveled to Chattanooga to purchase meth from Underhill. They bought about eight ounces on four or five occasions.
Underhill was earlier sentenced to 41 months, and Corn got 18 months.
Bohanan pleaded guilty and is to be sentenced on Jan. 10.
