But he told police that he had been drinking vodka since 9 a.m.

Jarrett needed to be detained with handcuffs at a holding cell after struggling with a cop, while Gabapentin (which treats seizure disorders and pain that occurs after shingles, among other maladies) was found in Jarrett's pocket upon his arrest.

Authorities also found proof inside his bag that Jarrett had just been released from an alcohol and chemical dependency treatment facility.

Jarrett was charged with one count of obstructing the legal process/interfering with a peace officer. He posted $300 bond and was released from the Hennepin County Jail early yesterday morning.

He will appear in court June 6 to answer to this charge.
