Police arrest "traveling vagabond" for possession of marijuana

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office arrested 34-year old William Joseph Galloway for possession of marijuana Tuesday morning.

According to authorities, Galloway was arrested after the car he was traveling in was pulled over for speeding just before 9:00 A.M. Tuesday on US Highway 290 near Carmine. 

The Sheriff's Office said Galloway exhibited nervous behavior and found marijuana in his possession. Later, the driver of the vehicle told authorities Galloway was a hitch hiker. 

When asked about his residence, Galloway responded he was not homeless, but just a "traveling vagabond."

Galloway was arrested and transported to the Dan R. Beck Justice Center. Authorities said Galloway has had numerous arrests in several other states. 

The driver of the vehicle was released.
