A 30 year-old Alpena man is facing up to 10 years in prison on a drug charge after police found him slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle, and appeared to be lifeless.


Detectives from the Huron Undercover Narcotics Team (HUNT) first came into contact with the suspect after they noticed a parked vehicle at a gas station on Chisholm Street, near 11th Avenue, last Thursday.


When the vehicle remained running for an extended period of time, a detective drove near it and found the driver slumped at the wheel and in a state of medical distress.


A city officer was called to the scene and the preliminary investigation revealed the suspect was under the influence of suspected narcotics.  An unknown quantity of methamphetamine was also seized from the vehicle.


William Tudor was subsequently arrested and jailed.  He has since been charged with a single count of possession of methamphetamine.


Tudor’s bond was set at $75,000.
