Duke Henry McCool, 32 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he was found in possession of methamphetamine during a struggle with police.

Officers said that McCool failed to obey commands to get in the ground before attempting to discard suspected methamphetamine.

Police said that they saw McCool pull the meth from his shorts in an effort to hide it from police.

McCool is charged with possession of methamphetamine, obstruction and probation violation.
