Blake convicted of possession of methamphetamine

William Lee Blake, 32, Little Falls, was convicted Jan. 8 of one felony count of possessing a controlled substance.

On Oct. 22, 2013, officers responded to a residence where yelling and screaming was heard. The homeowner directed the officers inside, saying her daughter and Blake were upstairs, fighting.

When contact was made, both Blake and the woman were breathing heavily and appeared to have been in a physical confrontation. The woman was bleeding from her finger and Blake had several scratches.

Blake refused to have the officer do a pat search and started to struggle. When told he was under arrest, he struggled more. He was eventually subdued after a taser was deployed.

A glass pipe which tested positive for methamphetamine was removed from his pocket.

In the upstairs room, officers located several empty Ziploc baggies with residue which tested positive for methamphetamine, a digital scale and a baggie containing a white powder which field-tested positive for methamphetamine. The substance weighed 1.64 grams.

Other drug paraphernalia was found in the room.

Blake was sentenced to prison in St. Cloud for 12 months and one day, stayed for five years, and 180 days in jail with credit for 79 days already served. He was fined $135 and given supervised probation for five years.
