A big meeting is held for city officials trying to figure out what to do with a police chief facing criminal charges.

This comes after a weekend incident when a Floyd County Police Chief allegedly caused a scene at a restaurant.

Donald Nathan Little is still the police chief in Wayland, but he wasn't on the job on Monday.

He's on the other side of the law facing charges of public intoxication after state police say he was high on drugs in a Pikeville restaurant.

Wayland Mayor Tommy Robinson hasn't taken any action against Little yet.

Little is also the only officer in Wayland so taking him off the job could affect the city.

The mayor didn't want to talk on camera before he decides what to do with Chief Little, but the mayor says he and other city officials are still investigating and plan to meet with Little to hear his side of what happened before they make any decisions.

Little was arrested Saturday in Bob Evans.

The arrest citation says employees called police saying he was dropping his food and had problems eating.

The trooper wrote on the citation Little failed a sobriety test and he believed Little was on drugs.

The citation also states little told the trooper he had taken methadone and muscle relaxers for back pain.

Little's attorney says he can't comment on the case right now.

Little posted bond and is out of jail.

He will be arraigned June 19th.
