A Paris man was arrested late Sunday by Henry County Sheriff’s Cpl. Dalton Watson after attempting to flee arrest for felony drug charges.
Charles E. Pruett, 36, 1015 Cowan St., was charged with possession of Schedule II and Schedule VI drugs with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver, felony escape, evading arrest, simple possession of Schedule IV drugs and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
A report by Watson indicated that approximately 33 grams of marijuana, a half-gram of methamphetamine and one Xanax pill, along with digital scales, plastic baggies and $235 cash, was seized from 225 Guthrie Road, where Pruett was arrested at 11:28 p.m.
Pruett had attempted to flee the area by exiting the building through a side window but was immediately apprehended.
He apparently told officers that he had put the wrong shoes on to try and run in the snow.
Pruett was given bond set at $40,000 and is scheduled to appear April 8 in Henry County General Sessions Court.
