Kentucky State Police arrested a Clarksville man on Friday after police allegedly found a large amount of illegal drugs.
31-year old Jeremy R. Wheeler of Clarksville was arrested and charged with trafficking in marijuana over five pounds, possession of drug paraphernalia, DUI and other traffic related offenses.
On Friday, Trooper Ben Cox reported seeing Wheeler drive erratically two miles north of Trenton and then ditch his vehicle near a field and observed him running on foot through a bean field.
After a brief foot pursuit, Wheeler was taken into custody and upon further investigation, police say it was determined that he was under the influence and found to be in possession of a large amount of marijuana.
Wheeler remains lodged in the Todd County Detention Center.
