A Waxahachie man was arrested Thursday on the Texas A&M campus after authorities said two ounces of methamphetamine was found inside his vehicle.

According to Texas A&M University police, an officer was patrolling campus parking off Wellborn Road and stopped a sport-utility vehicle that appeared to be speeding through the area. The officer spoke to Caleb Peter Hobart, 34, of Waxahachie, and noticed his eyes appeared bloodshot and his breath smelled of alcohol, a report notes. Police said an open beer bottle was in the center cup holder.

Hobart was asked to get out of the vehicle, but he refused to provide a breath or blood sample to police. A search was performed on the SUV, and underneath the driver’s seat, police said a bag of a crystal substance weighing a total of 56.7 grams — or two ounces — was found. A test showed the substance was methamphetamine.

Hobart is charged with possession of more than four grams of meth, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, and a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated with an open container. He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $13,000 bond.
