A former Roane County Prosecuting Attorney has been arrested in Charleston for DUI and possession of marijuana. Robin Welch is now a paralegal in Attorney General Darrell McGraw's office.

Charleston Police also arrested Assistant Attorney General Paul Jeffrey Spence, after the men reportedly had an evening on the town. Welch registered a blood alcohol three times the legal limit.

A patrolman said Welch dropped a small box which contained a smoking device, the residue testing positive for marijuana.

Welch was originally hired as an Assistant Attorney General, but was given the paralegal position after his law license was annulled for mishandling a clients money. He voluntarily agreed to be disbarred.
