Man also stuffs meth into sock, police say


A 21-year-old Samoan man was arrested on Sunday after allegedly throwing a meth pipe at Sulphur Springs Police's Officer Adrian Pruitt, according to police reports. 

At approximately 4:56 p.m. on Sunday, SSPD was dispatched to the 1500 block of Industrial drive for a disturbance, according to reports. At that time, officers believed the 21-year-old, Sami Sami Jr., was a threat of further violence to his family, and attempted to take him into custody, reports stated. 

Sami allegedly advised officers he was leaving, but instead walked around the rear of the complex to a maintenance shop, reports stated. Upon following Sami, Sami then allegedly threw a pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine at Officer Pruitt, reports stated. Officers also allegedly observed Sami stuff an unknown substance into his sock, reports stated. 

Sami allegedly admitted the substance he stuffed into his sock was methamphetamine, reports said. Officer Pruitt allegedly retrieved the baggie from Sami's sock, which contained suspected crystal methamphetamine. 

Sami was booked into jail on charges of tamper with or fabricate physical evidence and possession of a schedule one controlled substance less than one gram. He remains in jail and is not bond eligible, according to records.
