32-year-old James Matthew Walker and James Glenn Owens snorted a white, powdery substance in front of officers near the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge late June 28th. Police observed Owens holding a dollar bill with an unknown substance in it. Officers approached Owens and asked if it was his, which he confirmed. Owens then poured the substance onto a utility box and snorted half of it. Then, after Walker snorted what was left, they were both detained. Then, officers discovered Walker had an outstanding arrest warrant from Bowling Green, Kentucky, for violating probation. Walker was then taken into custody for public intoxication and being a fugitive from justice on June 29th.
