Driver Runs Away When Officer Finds Drugs

CORPUS CHRISTI - A driver who got into a struggle with a police officer managed to run away into the brush. The officer had pulled the 44-year-old over for a simple traffic violation near Violet and I-37.

However, the discovery of drugs in his car made things a little more serious.

According to police, the driver started struggling when the officer went to check the man for weapons. The two got into a fight that did not injure the officer.

Police never found the man, but they know who he is. So they're just waiting for an arrest warrant.

He's facing charges for assaulting an officer and drug possession.
