Prescott police arrested a man Wednesday on charges including driving under the influence of drugs after officers noticed alleged signs of impairment when he was stopped for driving a truck with suspended plates.

An officer booked Adam Lee Folker, 25, of Prescott, into the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde on charges of DUI drugs, possession of a narcotic drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and aggravated DUI on a suspended license.

When the officer stopped Folker, at 3:16 p.m. in the 300 block of Grove Avenue, the officer noticed Folker appeared pale and the pupils of his eyes were constricted, according to the police report.

Folker denied he was under the influence of any drugs or alcohol, according to the police report.

After field sobriety tests indicated Folker was impaired, the officer searched the truck and found a glass pipe for smoking marijuana in the middle of the seat under a sweatshirt and four Percocet pills in his front pocket, according to the police report.

Folker told the officer that he'd bought the Percocet pills from a friend, had taken a half of a pill that morning because he has a bad tooth and that the marijuana pipe was not his, according to the police report.

A blood sample Folker provided at the police station flashed positive for opiates and marijuana, according to the police report.
