Bud Weisser, 19, was placed under arrest for trespassing at the Budweiser Brewery located at 9th and Arsenal in St. Louis earlier this month. Police say Weisser entered a secured area at the brewery at after 6pm. Security officers told him to leave and called police after an altercation.
Weisser was taken into police custody that day. He was issued summonses for trespassing and resisting arrest.
Now he is also being charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. The probable cause statement, issued on December 17th from the St. Louis Circuit Attorney, says that he had methamphetamine and alprazolam with him while police were processing his arrest. He was being processed at 12:55am on December 4th.
A clerk searching Weisser during prisoner processing found a small bag containing numerous tablets and, "white powdery crystals fell out of his pants leg." Lab analysis confirmed the tablets to be alprazolam and the white powdery crystals to be methamphetamine.
Alprazolam is commonly known as Xanax. The drug gives users a sense of euphoria.
Weisser is currently on probation for charges related to resisting arrest and receiving stolen property.
It is not clear why Weisser was trespassing. But the Budweiser Brewery's Holiday Lights show runs from November 19th - January 3rd.
