Officers arrived and located 32-year-old Mathew Harmon near 22nd and M streets. 

BPD Chief Terry Moore says Harmon was stumbling in and out of the road and had uncontrollable actions such as bending over and turning around in circles.

While officers were talking to Harmon, he mentioned that he had used meth earlier in the day and gave consent to search his pockets. 

Officers located two plastic bags containing a crystal-like substance that later field tested positive for meth.

Harmon was arrested on charges of possession of meth and public intoxication.
