Chicago Man Faces Multiple Charges After Fleeing Traffic Stop in Centralia
Police say they saw Staples leave a suspected drug house in the 600 block of Rhodes Street they were watching. After determining his license was suspended, his vehicle was stopped in the 600 block of East Rexford.
Staples allegedly got out of the car, threw something beside the road, and then shoved the officer and took off running after being told he was under arrest. Staples was eventually stopped near McKee and Howard and taken into custody.
Police found the baggie that Staples had apparently tossed earlier and determined it contained a substance that tested positive as crack cocaine.
