Man on pre-trial release charged with marijuana possession and tampering with evidence


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Diatrez Plaise Anderson, 21, was arrested last night and charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and tampering with evidence after his friend allegedly offered a “hit” from his “blunt” to a police officer and he later tried to throw away the marijuana.

A Gainesville Police Department officer reportedly saw Anderson holding a lit marijuana “blunt” at 1005 W. University Avenue at about 11:20 p.m. last night, where his friend reportedly offered a “hit” of the “blunt” to a police officer. Anderson was then taken into custody.

After the officer took him to the jail, she checked the back of her patrol vehicle and reportedly found a bag of marijuana in a trash receptacle in the back seat, resulting in the charge of tampering with evidence.

Anderson has a juvenile criminal history and a felony drug conviction; he is also on pre-trial release in another case with charges of trafficking in phenethylamines and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Judge Walter Green set bail at $7,000.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • Wally would that not violated his pre trial release agreement? About no bond.

  • Walter Green strikes again…
    When someone is out on bond, a re-arrest is supposed to result in a bond revocation. Meaning no bond.

    • The state has to revoke his bond and a judge signs off on the revoke. Not a first appearance judge !
