A New Lisbon man faces drug charges after police say he was in possession of methamphetamine and hid drug paraphernalia from them inside his body.

Chris Davis, 19, is charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He faces up to five years imprisonment for each charge.

According to the criminal complaint:

A Wisconsin State Trooper observed a white Lexus driving above the speed limit in a 25 mph zone in New Lisbon March 1.

Upon making contact with the driver, later identified as Davis, the Trooper was informed his driver’s license was suspended.

The Trooper reported Davis was “extremely nervous,” and could see his hands were shaking and he was sweating.

While the Trooper ran Davis’ record, a K-9 unit was deployed to conduct a search of the vehicle.

The K-9 alerted indicated the presence of narcotics in the vehicle.

Upon searching the vehicle, the Trooper located a “small gem pack” in the driver side door.

The pack contained “about 1⁄16 of an inch of a salt type crystalline substance.”

Based on previous career experience, the Trooper believed the substance to be crystal methamphetamine.

The substance was later tested positive for methamphetamine at a total weight of .25 grams.

Davis was transported to the Juneau County Jail without incident.

In the sally port of the jail, Davis informed the Trooper and a Deputy he had “stuck a pipe in his rectum when he was getting pulled over.”

Davis then “reached his hand cuffed hands behind his back, reached in his shorts and retrieved a red glass THC pipe from his rectum.”

Davis is not currently in the Juneau County Jail. He was released on a signature bond of $2,000 March 2.

His initial appearance in court is scheduled for March 28 at the Juneau County Justice Center.
