The 48-year-old man had heroin in his pocket, meth and other peoples’ credit cards in his glovebox and a suspended license when Fife police stopped him, according to court documents.

Officers might not have noticed any of that if he hadn’t been accused of running into a telephone pole with his car, knocking it over.

He pleaded not guilty to various charges in court Tuesday.

According to court records:

The man was under the influence of alcohol when he drove a truck into the utility pole Friday. Witnesses said the truck went into the oncoming lane and crashed into the pole, and that the driver and a passenger got out, freed the vehicle and left.
