LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man was arrested for possession with the intent to distribute according to a Louisville Metro Police Department report.

Police responded to a call about a man shooting a gun while children were in the area. The officers were given a description of the man. When they arrived at the scene, a witness who wanted to stay anonymous, pointed out Butch Miles, 34, across the street.

According to police, Miles was standing by a bush on S. 17th Street. When officers approached Miles, he made a quick hand gesture towards the bush.

Apparently he also had an open liquor bottle in his hand. Police said they searched the bush and found a large baggie which contained 8 smaller baggies of what appeared to be cocaine.

Miles is being charged with trafficking in a controlled substance and drinking an alcoholic beverage in a public place.
