Wanted man arrested on methamphetamine possession charges, fighting with police
Norfolk Police arrested a man on a warrant on Monday evening who had apparently run away from officers and had drugs on him.
At 7:00 p.m., police had contact with Brandon James, 31, of Norfolk at the 1500 block of Ponca Hills Drive, Captain Michael Bauer said in a news release. James was outside his residence and was informed that he had an active arrest warrant in Madison County.
When informed of the warrant, Bauer said, James turned and ran to the officers at his home. Officers chased him inside and managed to grab his arms. James would continue to fight and hold on until the officers were able to get control and handcuff him.
In a subsequent search, officers recovered a small plastic bag from inside his sock that tested positive for suspected methamphetamine.
Bauer said James was arrested on a Madison County warrant and on charges of obstructing a peace officer, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance. He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
