LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The man who was acquitted of killing a Lafayette art teacher is facing multiple charges from his arrest on March 23.

According to court filings, police stopped a vehicle speeding on U.S. 52. The driver of the vehicle was Darius Printup. While police were conducting the traffic stop, an officer noticed a baggie tucked between the visor and the sunroof. A field test of the assorted pills in the baggie revealed it to be Ecstasy. A further search of the vehicle found hydrocodone and methamphetamine. 

Printup faces the following charges:

Dealing in methamphetamine (level 2 felony)

Possession of methamphetamine (Level 4 Felony)

 Possession of a Narcotic Drug (Level 6 Felony)

Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class A Misdemeanor)

Printup is currently being held in the Tippecanoe County Jail with a $250,000 bail. Printup has been arrested several times after he was accused and later acquitted of shooting and killing a Lafayette art teacher in 2017.
