Man arrested after "nodding off" in his car

On Saturday, Sept. 15, Jackson Co. put out an alert to be on the lookout for a driver nodding off in his car.

Then a tip came in to the Jackson Co. dispatch of a man, sitting in his car in front of a gas pump at a gas station, apparently sleeping.

When they arrived at the station, they saw the 61-year-old man in his car.

He resisted arrest.

The deputies found heroin and crack cocaine on his person.

The man is currently lodged at the Jackson Co. Sheriff's department.
