A Georgia man was taken into custody early Friday morning in Carroll on a simulated public intoxication charge. At approximately 2:30 a.m., the Carroll Police Department was dispatched to the 1100 block of West 20th Street for a motor vehicle assist. Upon arrival, the officers located 29-year-old Nicholas Gerald Peaden of Griffin, Ga. sitting in the passenger seat of a Ford F-150. While speaking with Peaden, authorities noted he appeared to be showing signs of intoxication. He first stated he was coming from Ames and then said he was coming from Marshalltown. Peaden also displayed a lack of balance, complained of being cold but was sweating and failed a field sobriety test. A preliminary breath test was administered but returned a BAC of 0.00. Peaden was taken into custody on suspicion of methamphetamine use and transported to the Carroll County jail. He is charged with first-offense simulated public intoxication, a simple misdemeanor.
