A Bryan man now faces drug- and alcohol-related charges after he was pulled over for allegedly speeding and authorities came to believe he was intoxicated and in possession of drugs.

The 38-year-old Bryan man was arrested Monday after an officer with the Texas Department of Public Safety allegedly observed him going around 52 mph in a 70 mph zone. The officer also claims to have seen the man take two lefts using his right turn signal.

According to an arrest report filed over the incident, the man was barely coherent when the officer asked him to identify himself.

The man was given sobriety tests and was then taken to the officer's vehicle after he failed them. According to the arrest report, the officer found a clear baggie of cocaine where the man had been standing. (How it was learned the substance in the baggie was actually cocaine is not clear.)

The man was taken to Brazos County Jail. He has now been charged with DWI and manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance.

Now, a drug charge or a drunk driving charge would be serious on its own, but facing one of each charge in connection with the same incident is even more serious. We hope this man has made arrangements to have a thorough defense.
