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.
