    DES MOINES (AP) - A Marshalltown man who won $1 million in the Powerball lottery last year has been charged with supplying alcohol to a minor and prescription drug possession.

    Marshalltown Police Chief Brian Batterson says Ricky Rushton was arrested early Tuesday after officers responded to a complaint about underage drinking at his business, Memories Banquet Hall.

    Batterson says Wednesday that officers found an underage employee at the business who was intoxicated.

    Rushton was arrested for supplying alcohol to a minor. He was also charged with possession of a prescription drug and violating a city liquor license ordinance.

    Rushton on Wednesday called his arrest "a big misunderstanding." He says he's in the process of hiring an attorney "to get this cleared up."
