Evin Edwards, Jr., 31, was arrested Wednesday night at the Regency Inn on Murfreesboro Pike after he told police that "I got stuff to make meth in here," according to the affidavit obtained by FOX 17 News.
In the room, police found ingredients for making methamphetamine, including cold compress packages, salt, Coleman fuel, ground up pseudoephedrine, sulfuric acid and lithium batteries and syringes.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
