A Boise man and woman probably hadn't planned on seeing the New Year from behind bars, but that's where they landed on Sunday.

Daniel Davis, 22, is charged with meth possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and concealing a weapon.

Boise law enforcement responded to a 911 call from a citizen, saying a man was hiding in the bushes of a neighbor's yard on the 9000 block of West Brookview Court Sunday night. Shortly thereafter, police stopped a man matching the suspect's description, and when they disarmed the suspect of a knife he was carrying, police said they also discovered meth and a pipe in the suspect's possession.

Daniel Davis, 22, of Boise was locked up at the Ada County Jail for felony meth possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a concealed weapon.

Lisa Cresswell, 31, is charged with DUI, driving without privileges and injury to a child.

Earlier Sunday, Boise Police stopped a vehicle near 22nd and Anderson streets and noted that the driver, who appeared to be very intoxicated, had a child under the age of 5 in the car.

Police said 31-year-old Lisa Cresswell of Boise failed several field sobriety tests, and a check through Boise City Records indicated that Cresswell had prior DUI convictions.

Cresswell was charged with felony DUI, driving without privileges and injury to a child.
