A man was taken into custody early Friday after an University of Missouri police officer found drug paraphernalia inside his car.
MUPD said an officer was helping William Gatewood with his car on Mick Deaver Memorial Drive when he noticed the drug paraphernalia. When the officer asked Gatewood about the item, Gatewood reportedly tried to throw it into a storm drain and moved away from the officer.
Police said Gatewood was taken into custody and the drug item was found. Gatewood was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest by flight and tampering with physical evidence.
He’s currently being held in the Boone County Jail.
