A Sylacauga man was arrested last month on two charges, including public intoxication.
Sheriff Michael Howell reported this week that on January 10 the Sheriff’s Office dispatch had received numerous calls regarding a white male who repeatedly staggered out into the roadway in the Stewartville area.
A deputy responded and made contact with the individual on County Road 39. The deputy approached and talked to the man, who was later identified as Daniel Newsome.
Howell said that the deputy smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from Newsome. He also noticed that Newsome had several alcoholic glass bottles upside down in his jean pockets.
Newsome, 41 years old, was placed under arrest. The deputy then also found several pills in Newsome’s pocket.
He was charged with public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance. His bond was set at $3,000, and he was released on bond on January 16 to await trial.
