Kevin Price, 46 of Russellville, appeared in a bond hearing on Monday before Judge Don Bourne. Price appeared after his arrest by the Arkansas State Police and is accused of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to a report provided by the Arkansas State Police, an ASP Trooper conducted a traffic stop on Alpine Meadow Road for an illegal lane change on a vehicle driven by Price. The trooper stated in his report that he approached the vehicle and that Price appeared to be under the influence.
After running Price's identification, the information returned and Price's driver's license was suspended. Price attempted to run from the trooper and threw away a container. Price was arrested and the container was recovered.

When questioned, Price admitted to having "2 eight balls of meth" on him.
