His passenger, Christopher L. Rechtfertig, 21, of West Plains, Mo., was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and public intoxication after a small bag of marijuana was located behind the driver where Rechtfertig was sitting.

During this traffic stop, police received a complaint of unruly subjects at Dailey's Market. Sheriff Ray Burnam responded and located an intoxicated subject in a vehicle and another passenger who was wanted out of Clay County. They were a traveling party to the vehicle stopped by Acree.
