MIAMI COUNTY — A Troy man received a short jail sentence and probation for attempting to sell fake marijuana to Troy police in an incident that was later part of a viral video.

Khristian D.L. Felver, 21, of Troy, received 21 days in jail, one year of probation, 159 days of suspended jail time, and a $200 fine for first-degree misdemeanor attempted trafficking in a counterfeit substance in Miami County Municipal Court this week. That charge was amended down from fourth-degree felony trafficking in a counterfeit substance.

Felver was originally charged in December after he attempted to sell fake marijuana to Troy police at Troy Community Park on Dec. 27. Felver reportedly captured this incident in a video that went viral online, receiving over 2 million views on various social media platforms.

According to Miami County Municipal Court records, an officer involved in that incident noted that the fallout of the viral video “caused a steady stream of individuals sending harassing messages to the police department” and “people suggesting that individuals follow me home.”

Felver also received one year of probation and suspended jail time for first-degree misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon.

Felonious assault charge dropped

A Dayton man accused of intentionally causing a wreck earlier this year was sentenced to a reduced charge this week in municipal court.

Tony L. Knowles, 20, of Dayton, was sentenced to two years of probation and 45 days in jail for second-degree misdemeanor criminal damaging, amended down from fifth-degree felony vandalism. An additional charge of second-degree felonious assault was dismissed.

Knowles was charged in connection with a crash in the area of U.S. Route 40 and Futura Parkway in Huber Heights on March 11. According to court records, while Knowles was a passenger in a motor vehicle, he “intentionally grabbed the steering wheel and pulled it to the right” and caused the vehicle that the victim was driving “to crash into several trees several feet off of the roadway.”

The vehicle was reportedly traveling about 50 miles per hour at the time of the crash and was found approximately 30 feet off the north side of the roadway into several trees. The driver was not injured, and Knowles only had minor injuries.

Knowles admitted to causing the wreck. He also admitted to having consumed nine beers that evening.

Knowles was also found guilty of first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence and first-degree misdemeanor offenses involving underage persons.
