JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

A man showed up for court in Washington County, Tennessee Tuesday and ended up going to jail on a new unrelated charge.

Johnson City Police arrested 26-year-old Dustin Smith in General Sessions Court. Officers say Smith tried to rob Gray Pharmacy on Monday afternoon. 

Police say Smith pulled up to the drive-through window and demanded medication in exchange for no one being hurt, but they say he then drove away.

Witnesses told police they were scared he had a weapon because he kept his hand hidden.

Smith is being charged with attempted robbery.
