JACKSON CO., FLA. (WTXL) - After discovering drugs and drug paraphernalia in a vehicle, a Jackson County Sheriff's deputy arrested a man Tuesday night.

According to the press release, the deputy was responding to a suspicious vehicle and arrived around 6:59 p.m. to a Honda sedan parked near Paradise Club Road. Inside the running car, the deputy found the only passenger, George Glenn Dunaway, asleep in the driver's seat. 

After waking the 36-year-old, the release says that Dunaway told the deputy he had been awake for two days and was having trouble staying awake. The deputy checked Dunaway's driver license and found it to be under suspension. 

Authorities say the deputy noticed Dunaway behaving erratically and asked Dunaway if he was under the influence. Dunaway denied taking any narcotics or consuming any alcohol.

When Dunaway got out of the car, the deputy noticed a prescription pill bottle with a torn-off label and unknown pills inside. They were later identify as morphine, alprazolam and acetaminophen/hydrocodone. Dunaway did not possess prescriptions for those medications. 

After further questioning, officers say they found a small quantity of marijuana in the glove compartment. As the search continued, a black nylon bag containing several used syringes, used cotton swabs and spoons with residue were found.

Dunaway was asked to perform Field Sobriety Exercises but due to his level of impairment was not able to complete them according to Sheriff's Department documents.
