Cab owner arrested for meth possession

Bloomington police found an unconscious taxi driver in possession of meth Sunday in his still running cab parked near the 14th Street and Woodburn Avenue intersection.

Paul Bridgewater, 28, opened his cab door to police, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Joe Crider said. The officer noticed an orange prescription bottle with the label removed in the driver side door.

Police identified meth in the bottle after Bridgewater agreed to let police examine the bottle. He admitted to knowing the meth was in the cab but denied ownership.

After passing dexterity tests Bridgewater was arrested for possession of meth, a class D felony, with bond set at $2,000 surety and $500 cash.
