WAYNOKA, Okla. (AP) _ The mayor of Waynoka is apologizing to residents of the northwest Oklahoma town after his arrest on drug charges.

John Wallace Fiscus apologized during a town hall meeting and says he is trying to get help for his drug problem.

He says he hopes the arrest won't cost him his job.

Fiscus was arrested this week after an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper stopped him for speeding near Cherokee and found marijuana, methamphetamine and a glass pipe in his pickup.

City Attorney Bryce Kennedy says Fiscus can't be removed from office until after he's either found guilty or pleads guilty or no contest to a felony charge.

Fiscus is to return to court on March 16th.
