At around 9:30 a.m Wednesday, police went to the First National Bank parking lot at 201 N. Dewey on a report of suspicious activity.

Witnesses said someone in a black Ford Explorer ran over a curb and had difficulty parking.

Officers found the Explorer parking in the middle of the lot, police information officer Rodney Brown said. The driver, William Theus, 27, was unsteady on his feet and his speech was slurred.

Brown said a pat search turned up a glass pipe that contained white powder residue, consistent with those typically used to smoke methamphetamine.

There was also a .22 caliber rifle in the SUV. Police determined there was probable cause to charged Theus with driving under the influence of drugs and felon in possession of a firearm.

Theus and his brother Calvin were charged in 2012 with beating a middle-aged couple that lived in their neighborhood. He did 172 days in jail on the charge. He was convicted of misdemeanor assault, but did not comply with the terms of probation.

He was taken to the Lincoln County Jail.
