Officer Johnson spoke with James Belcher who claimed he was extremely intoxicated and was on the grass due to falling while walking down the road. A search of his person yielded a baggie containing a plant-like substance which Belcher reported was marijuana. He stated he forgot it was on him because of how intoxicated he was. He was considered a danger to himself and was placed into custody.
