Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter says a man is facing additional charges after violating a protection order.

Kevin Randolph McClendon, 56, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

According to Sheriff Walter, on Sunday, December 28 at around 11 a.m., a deputy saw McClendon at a business on Highway 61 in Morley.

McClendon was arrested for violating an adult protection order issued by Scott County Associate Circuit Court.

According to Sheriff Walter, McClendon told the deputy he wanted to leave his vehicle at the business and his jacket inside the vehicle.

He said McClendon allegedly pulled a black container from the jacket pocket and opened it.

The deputy said he saw a plastic baggie containing a crystal-like substance inside the container and ordered McClendon to surrender it.

McClendon allegedly backed away and then turned to walk away, dropping the clear plastic baggie.

The deputy then grabbed McClendon's left arm and ordered him to get on the ground. He said McClendon resisted, backed away and ignored the commands of the deputy.

McClendon was forced to the ground and the clear plastic baggie was then recovered from under McClendon's feet.

After being handcuffed, Sheriff Walter said McClendon volunteered there was a glass pipe in the vehicle.

Sheriff Walter said a glass pipe with a burnt substance was found in the driver's side door. Both the glass pipe and the clear plastic baggie field tested positive for methamphetamine.

McClendon was taken to the Scott County Jail. His bond was set at $2,500 cash only.
