Bottle of pee lands Gunter in hot water

A man who left a bottle of urine and drugs lying around his house for his probation officer to find will serve 105 days in jail.
The man, Tommy Gunter, 33, entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to charges of falsifying a drug test and possession of marijuana. He was ordered to serve 105 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence in addition to time he owes from Circuit Court.
His sentence comes after he failed a drug test for meth and was going to get a second chance to take the test when his probation officer came to his home. However, upon her arrival, Gunter appeared to be ill-prepared.
“When inside the home, a search found a pill bottle with urine inside, next to condoms that were cut and the pill bottle was duct taped,” said probation officer Megan Stone in her warrant against Gunter.
The officer felt Gunter was preparing an attempt to falsify his drug test by introducing clean urine in his re-test. The attempt was thwarted by the bottle being found before he could use it.
Officers went on to find foil, a razor, and meth inside drawers in the house. There was also a marijuana joint found on a bookcase.
