LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An officer found  George Fischer slumped over the wheel of a black Chevy Suburban with drugs inside Thursday morning.

The report says George Fischer was passed out at the wheel parked in front of the Derby City Chop Shop on Bardstown Road just before noon.

LMPD says Fischer admitted to taking prescription medication and smoking marijuana in the morning.

The officer found marijuana and three pills in an unmarked container in the car.

24-year-old George Fischer faces two drug possession charges, and one for an improperly marked container.

The citation lists the mayor's home as George Fischer's address.

Mayor Greg Fischer sent a statement Thursday afternoon. 

“My son made a bad decision and received a citation from the police," Fischer said. "We are addressing it as a family.”

He was cited but not taken to jail, and has been ordered to appear in court next month.
