An area man faces drug charges after officers found him Friday in an open field, sitting in his vehicle.

James A. Nowlin, 32, was sitting in a field by Pasti’s when officers arrived and found his vehicle in gear and the motor running.

He was asked if he knew where he was, and after looking around, he said he did know where he was, but admitted he didn’t know how he got there.
