Police say a man with drugs fled arrest on a bicycle Wednesday, but was captured shortly after.

Terry Bull of the Paris Police Department said officers were performing a security check in the 1600 block of Bonham Street when they made contact with Thomas Andrew Johnson.

“He identified himself only as Andrew Johnson,” Bull said. “While waiting or a warrant check, Johnson fled the scene on a bicycle.”

He was pursued and captured after leaving the bicycle and running on foot, Bull said.

Johnson resisted arrest, but was taken into custody.

“A search revealed a quantity of narcotics and drug paraphernalia on his person,” Bull said. “He also had numerous warrant from the Paris Police Department and Lamar County Sheriff’s Office.”

He was arrested and charged with the warrants, as well as evading arrest and possession of marijuana.
