ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) – Police arrested two people after they were caught with drugs in a car.

According to police, Carlson gave a false name but police were able to figure out who he was. Carlson was reportedly wanted for arrest.

Carlson resisted the arrest causing police to use a taser on him to get the situation under control.

Carlson and Wenthold are now facing fifth degree meth possession charges. Police said Carlson is also looking at obstruction charges for resisting arrest.
