46MADISONVILLE 0604 The search for a suspect with a warrant is what led the M-P-D to make some arrests.  Upon arriving at a residence on Whittington Drive, a resident appeared suspicious when he opened the front door and quickly returned inside after seeing the cops. Once inside, the officers noticed meth and drug paraphernalia.  27-year-old Chloe Coyer began screaming and refused to get into the police cruiser.  Due to her unwillingness to follow the officer’s instructions, she was pepper sprayed.  She continued hitting her head against the vehicle after arriving at the jail and had to be placed in a chair.  Also arrested was Braxton Hayes.  Hayes faces the same charges: possession of marijuana and meth, as well as drug paraphernalia.
