Humphrey is reported to have violated a conditional bond that was on him by harassing the person who filed the complaint against him. This was done in the presence of a minor while he was at her home. When he was stopped, it was for failing to maintain his lane, which almost caused a collision with the police car.

When he was pulled over, the officers found him with a syringe that was full of what they suspect to be methamphetamine. He is currently being held at the Floyd County Jail without bond.
