FERDINAND — Police arrested a Perry County man after an encounter Tuesday in Ferdinand.

The suspect, Timothy J. Taylor, 32, Bristow, was subsequently stopped by police near 11th and Main streets while driving a 2002 Chevrolet Impala.
Police allege Taylor had unsteady balance, slurred speech, constricted pupils and was unable to remain still. An officer who noticed the odor of burnt marijuana suspected Taylor of being under the influence of a controlled substance.
