A Giddings man was arrested Thursday for narcotics possession after authorities said he led them on a foot chase through a muddy creek in Bryan.
Ronald Lamont Guyton, 30, was a passenger in a vehicle that refused to stop for Bryan police after several traffic violations, according to an officer's affidavit. The vehicle parked on Waco Street near Old Kurten Road after a brief chase and Guyton then ran from police, court documents state.
He ran through a small nearby creek, tossing several items into the knee-deep water before he was caught, police said. Officers located the items in the creek, including about 63 grams of PCP, less than one gram of crack cocaine and seven ecstasy pills, which weighed close to four grams, the affidavit states.
Guyton was arrested on a probation violation warrant and was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance, evading arrest, tampering with a government document and failure to identify himself as a fugitive. He was being held late Thursday on $40,500 bond at the Brazos County Jail.
