Mayor Shawna Girgis says Klumpp has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal investigation.

According to Greenwood City Court records, 56-year-old Klumpp of Bedford was arrested on a Class A misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance. According to court records, on Monday, September 17th Klumpp was stopped at North State Road 37 and West County Line Road in Greenwood, by a Johnson County deputy who witnessed Klumpp's vehicle swerving.

During a search of the vehicle, police found drugs and drug paraphernalia.

He is scheduled to appear in Greenwood City Court on December 5th at 10:30 a.m. for his initial hearing.

This is the second time Klumpp has been arrested on drug charges.

In May 2013, Klumpp was arrested in Monroe County for possession of drug paraphernalia. That charge was dismissed.
