Michael A. Sherman, 38, pleaded not guilty to three counts of drug possession and one count each of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest and obstructing official business in Clark County Municipal Court on Wednesday. Bond was set at $7,500.

Sherman was allegedly found passed out in a running car in the 6000 block of New Horizon Drive at about 11 a.m. Tuesday. Clark County Sheriff’s detectives were serving an arrest warrant on a woman he knows at a home nearby when they were told about Sherman.

A detective shook Sherman and he woke up immediately. He allegedly told officers he was waiting for the woman and had recently smoked marijuana. He also allegedly pointed out a glass pipe in the driver’s side door panel, which he continued to mess with to find his identification, the report said.

Another officer followed and Sherman allegedly fell to the ground. The officer attempted to keep Sherman on the ground, but he allegedly didn’t comply and was then struck in the buttocks by the officer’s taser, the report said. Sherman allegedly told police he ran because he had active warrants out of Montgomery County, it said.

While searching the vehicle, deputies allegedly found a small change purse that include 2.5 grams of crystal meth, 36 Clozapam tablets and half a tablet of Xanax, the report said. They also allegedly found several items not belonging to Sherman, including electronics, jewelry, credit cards, debit cards, check books, social security cards and mail, it said.
