Police said officers were called to a party at the 600 block of East Main Street just after 1 a.m. Saturday when they received a tip that several partygoers were drinking underage.
Oldbear, 19, and an unidentified woman were standing outside near a car playing loud music when police asked to see the couple's identification. While police were running Oldbear's name - which turned up warrants in Tama county - he fled the scene, knocking over a peace officer in the process.
Upon an initial search of Oldbear, police found 5 grams of meth. An additional search upon his arrest and a search of his car yielded the remaining narcotics.
