A backhoe driver was arrested on multiple charges at 2:10 a.m. Sunday when he was spotted driving on North Fourth Street.
William Patrick Minor, 49, of 1300 State, was arrested on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, resisting obstructing a peace officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence, no valid driver's license, failure to signal and failure to have a slow moving vehicle emblem. He was lodged in the Adams County Jail.
Police spotted the northbound 2000 Case backhoe and made a traffic stop at Ninth and College. It was discovered that Minor did not have a valid driver's license, and he resisted when officers attempted to arrest him.
Once in custody, police said Minor was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. A search was made of the backhoe, and police said officers found items used to manufacture meth.
