Reeder resident Jeremy Mellmer, 32, pleaded not guilty to a Class B felony of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, as well as misdemeanor charges of illegally carrying a concealed weapon and possession of methamphetamine paraphernalia.

Dickinson Police officers testified during a preliminary hearing that they found Mellmer passed out in his vehicle on the side of the road on Aug. 23, with a meth-smoking device in his hands.

After he was taken from his vehicle, the officers discovered a sizable quantity of marijuana, along with little baggies. Mellmer was subsequently arrested.

The pipe was confiscated, and a firearm was also found on his person.

Mellmer awaits further court proceedings for his involvement in a police pursuit and subsequent standoff in early December.
