The trooper asked Cline if he had anything illegal on his person, and Cline removed his hat where he had a hypodermic needle, and took out a very large butcher knife from his back and laid both on the hood of the trooper’s vehicle, according to the citation. The trooper searched Cline and found a black digital scale and a metal container with a plastic bag holding three bags of a “glass-like” substance later identified as methamphetamine, and according to the citation, when he found the item, Cline screamed profanities and dropped to his knees.
