Traffic stop ends with felony charges
Brandon Ray Timmons, 25, of Sulphur Springs was arrested at 2:10 p.m. Monday during a traffic stop at the intersection of Maxwell and Ardis streets on multiple charges.
Officer Adrian Pruitt reportedly conducted a traffic stop on Timmons, during which Timmons allegedly became argumentative. Pruitt reportedly attempted to conduct a pat down search and observed Timmons to be clutching a plastic baggie in his left hand. Pruitt reportedly gave Timmons several verbal commands to release the baggie, but Timmons allegedly failed to comply and began to physically resist the officer.
Pruitt reportedly used the least amount of force necessary and took Timmons to the ground. Timmons allegedly threw the baggie and continued to resist. Pruitt reportedly recovered the baggie and discovered it allegedly contained suspected methamphetamine, weighing 1.1 gram.
Timmons was charged with possession of 1-4 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence and resisting arrest, search or transport. Bond was set at $22,000, and Timmons remained in custody as of press time Tuesday, according to arrest and jail reports.
