Man arrested on paraphernalia charges

A man who was stopped for speeding ended up being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Chance Hayes, 18, Morrison Road, was stopped on Greasy Creek Road near the Bear Wallow intersection just after midnight April 8.

Brown County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Eggebrecht searched his vehicle and reported finding a glass pipe for using marijuana, with burnt residue in it, under the driver’s seat. He also reported that the pipe smelled of another, sweeter smell, possibly “spice,” a synthetic marijuana.

Hayes told Eggebrecht that he had just gotten the pipe from a friend who had previously used it, and he had “not even gotten to use it yet,” the police report said.

Eggebrecht issued him a summons to appear in court; Hayes missed his court date June 14. He was formally charged in May with possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
