A Milwaukee man had 13 pills of various types in his possession when he was stopped Jan. 5 on Interstate 94 in Raymond.

A Racine County Sheriff’s deputy stopped Ryan R. Franson, 28, about 10 p.m. The criminal complaint does not list a reason for the stop.

When he approached the vehicle, the deputy reported smelling burnt marijuana and finding a glass pipe and two Adderall pills with him. Franson was speaking very slowly, the deputy reported, and because of the extreme cold, was taken to the Sheriff’s Office substation for field sobriety tests.

The deputy reports he failed three of the four tests administered, and that Franson’s tongue was slightly tinted green.

The deputy believed Franson was operating under the influence of a drug, rather than alcohol. He gave a clean breath sample, and was then taken to the hospital for a blood draw. Test results have not yet come back.

Franson was booked on five drug counts – possession of narcotic drugs, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance – as well as his second operating while intoxicated offense.
