ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, St. Louis area attorney Eric Vickers was arrested yesterday in Montgomery County Missouri just before 6pm on a charge of misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He has since bonded out of jail according to online arrest records. Vickers, 61, is listed as a legislative staff member on the website for Missouri State Senator Jamilah Nasheed.
Fox 2 has reached out to Nasheed for comment on the arrest. She responded with, “Eric is a valued member of my staff and a friend. My office has the utmost respect for the law and those who enforce it.
I expect this matter to play itself out in a court of law and not through the media. As this is a personnel matter, I intend to not release further statements or address further media requests on it until court proceedings have reached a conclusion.”
