Just after 6:30 on Tuesday two Eau Claire men were arrested after a drug deal at a local restaurant. It was at the Burger King in the Village of Lake Hallie after a caller stated they witnessed 2 males seated in a booth exchange what they believed to be a bag of drugs and money.
Officers arrived at the store and contacted the subjects who were identified as 44 year old Bruce E. Caver and 39 year old Duane L. Perkins. While searching the pockets of Caver, a bag of suspected methamphetamine was located. When officers attempted to handcuff him, he ran for the exit where he was apprehended by officers. Both men were taken into custody and charged.
