A Milford man appeared in court Monday facing drugs and weapon charges.

Police said 45-year-old Richard Showalter was pulled over early Sunday morning on West Liberty Street in Over-the-Rhine when he was seen driving with high beam headlights.

During the traffic stop, officers said Showalter gave a fake name and date of birth. He also didn't have a valid driver's license, according to the police report.

Police said Showalter had an open blade knife under his leg during the traffic stop, which he allegedly picked up when asked to exit the vehicle. A digital scale and a bag of cocaine were also found.

Showalter was arrested and charged possession of illegal drug paraphernalia, carrying a concealed weapon, and driving under FRA suspension.

His next appearance in court is November 20.
