BENTON, Mo. -- A Haywood City, Mo., man is in the custody of the Scott County Sheriff's Department after a brief struggle Saturday when authorities reportedly found him in possession of marijuana at Mr. C's Night Club in Sikeston, Mo. Sheriff Rick Walter said in a news release that his deputies Sgt. Branden Caid and Cpt. Gregg Ourth came into contact with Aaron Peet, 21, at the nightclub where he allegedly was in possession of several bags of marijuana. Caid was working security at the club and was asked to assist staff in checking patrons for weapons and contraband before entering the establishment, according to a probable-cause affidavit. Peet was also allegedly holding alcohol in a pants pocket, which is not allowed in the nightclub. Peet was being held on a $15,000 bond and is set to appear today before a Scott County Circuit Court Judge Scott Horman.
