Michael Alvin Farmer, 52, of Logan, was arrested in Chapmanville by Patrolman D.J. Bryant of the Chapmanville Police Department for DUI, possession of a controlled substance, no license and destruction of property on Oct. 13.
Farmer was booked at the Southwestern Regional Jail at Holden at 8:15 p.m.
According to police reports, Officer Bryant received a dispatch from 911 about a possibly drunk driver sitting in the parking lot of the Aracoma Drug Store.
When Bryant arrived on scene, Farmer reportedly pulled out, and hit a parked vehicle at Foodland before he could come to a stop.
“Upon further investigation, I found a bottle of pills which appeared to be xanax,” the report states.
The report said there were 60 tablets filled on October 11 but there only 24 pills remained in the bottle. The report said Farmer was unable to walk without assistance and told the officer not to waste his time giving him a field sobriety test, “because he’d fail them.”
