When police arrived they located 26-year-old William Bennett walking along the highway in the rain.

“While speaking to Bennett the officer noticed signs of intoxication and found Bennett in possession of a digital scale with a residue that field-tested positive for meth,” said Chief Deputy Aaron Shoults. “At times Bennett would wave and yell at passing vehicles and was uncooperative with officers. He was subsequently arrested and transported to jail.”

Bennett is facing charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
