McMann said responding officers contacted Morrill near the playground.

“Morrill was speaking incoherently and acting strangely leading the officers to believe he was under the influence of narcotics,” McMann said. “The officers discovered a glass pipe in Morrill’s pocket with a crystal-like residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine.”

Morrill was then transported to the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton.
