Schindler later admitted he had taken a substance known as K2. While K2 is legal and is marketed as potpourri, it can produce hallucinating effects when smoked. Upon his arrest for driving under the influence of drugs, police searched the vehicle and found six tablets of the prescription pain killer gabapentin. A search of Schinder’s pockets and coat turned up the K2, Eaton added.

In addition to being charged with operating under the influence of drugs, Schindler is facing charges of receiving a stolen motor vehicle, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, marked lanes and failure to stop/yield.

Court documents show that Schindler was admitted to the John Ashford Link House on Nov. 20.
