An officer spotted the black Dodge Charger in a parking lot in the 700 block of W Street. Police found 27-year-old Kendal Bailey in the driver’s seat with his eyes closed and his head nodding up and down. The vehicle was still running and in drive, but Bailey’s foot was on the brake.

During a search of Bailey’s pockets, an officer found a paper containing crystal meth and a paper containing another substance. The substance was submitted for testing.

Bailey failed several field sobriety tests.

Bailey was arrested on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, OWI refusal, OWI controlled substance, OWI endangerment, possession of a narcotic drug and possession of meth.
