A: I cant really answer your question about Tennessee laws, if it was in Georgia he would still have to go to court and answer for the charges on the Drugs. As far as the hold for extradition, usually law enforcement in Georgia will usually hold for a minimum of 45 days waiting for another law enforcement agency to pick him up.
