POCATELLO — The Pocatello Police Department didn’t have to go far to arrest 25-year-old Shawn Earl Barkdull. He was taken into custody in the police station parking lot for a misdemeanor driving-under-the-influence and felony possession of methamphetamine.

Police received calls from a man around 8:00 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8 who said he was being followed by Barkdull after they got into an altercation.

The individual drove to the police station and Barkdull followed him, police spokeswoman Dianne Brush told

According to investigators, Barkdull willingly drove into the parking lot and pulled up right behind the other man. Detectives were waiting and performed a dexterity test on Barkdull.

Barkdull was booked into the Bannock County Jail where he remains incarcerated on $11,000 bond for possession of a controlled substance and a DUI.
