Quantez Alfred Leonard, 34, of Jonesboro, is charged with cocaine trafficking, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and DUI.
Deputies patrolling the interstate spotted a 1999 S-10 pickup truck driving erratically near exit 51, heading southbound.
After making a traffic stop on the truck, deputies observed the smell of alcohol coming from the vehicle and asked the driver to perform a field sobriety test.
Leonard reportedly failed to complete the test and was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
While performing an inventory of the truck, deputies located 41 grams of cocaine located in a lunchbox cooler, along with plastic baggies and a digital scale, according to Lt. Chuck Smith.
