Man sleeping in car arrested for drugs

A Brown County man faces two drug-related charges after police found him asleep in his car in the middle of the road June 11.

Brown County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Eggebrecht responded to Jackson Branch Ridge Road for a report of a man slumped over the wheel of a vehicle. He found a disoriented Adam Wagler, 36, Homestead Road, parked in the middle of the road, a probable cause affidavit said.

Eggebrecht reported seeing a glass smoking pipe with white residue in it, sitting on top of clothing in the passenger seat, the affidavit said.

The white residue was less than a gram of methamphetamine, the report said.

Wagler told the officer that he needed to be back in jail in order to stay off meth, the report said. He said he was going to buy meth when he fell asleep in the road. Eggebrecht reported finding three $20 bills in the vehicle, the report said.

Wagler was charged June 20 with possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
