(GNAWBONE) - A Columbus man was arrested after an Indiana State Trooper stopped his vehicle on State Road 46 near Gnawbone earlier this week.

According to ISP Trooper Chris Griggs, Jami M. Martin attempted to exit the vehicle after being instructed more than once to stay in the vehicle.

Martin got back into the vehicle, placed it in gear and traveled west through a parking lot, then through a yard and attempted to come back out onto State Road 46. Seeing he could not enter back onto State Road 46, Martin exited his vehicle and fled on foot behind residences on State Road 46 but was apprehended a short time later by Trooper Griggs.

Nashville Police Officer Matt Hatchett, Brown County Sheriff's Deputies Sergeant William Southerland and Lieutenant Mike Moore arrived and assisted at the scene.

Police found two bags of a crystal type substance on Martin's person. Another three bags of crystal type substance were located under a tree where Martin had been, by Sgt Southerland and Lt. Moore with the assistance of Southerland's K-9. Also found in the same place was a hat Martin had been wearing when he fled on foot. Martin admitted the substance found on his person was methamphetamine.

Martin was arrested and taken to the Brown County Jail on charges of resisting law enforcement, a Level 6 felony, possession of meth over 3 grams, a Level 5 felony and obstruction of justice, a Level 6 felony, resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor.
