Walden Jr, of Hannibal, was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated, Driving While Revoked, Possession of Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and an active Lincoln County warrant. During a search of Walden’s vehicle Officers located a substance believed to be Methamphetamine and several items of drug paraphernalia.

A criminal charge is merely an allegation and the defendant is, of course, presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
