Violent arrest made by MHP on I-20 west

HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A routine traffic stop for the highway patrol turned into a violent arrest Saturday night.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. on I-20 westbound near the Springridge Road Exit.

A state trooper pulled a Honda Civic over because the vehicle did not have a tag.

According to Trooper Eric Henry, MHP Public Affairs Officer, two males between the ages of 22-25-years-old, were inside the vehicle.

Henry said once the vehicle was pulled over one of the men began to come toward the trooper.

The trooper drew his weapon and ordered the man to stop and called for backup.

Henry said when backup arrived the man began to wrestle with the trooper and the man was tasered by a trooper. 

Neither man had identification.

Henry said about less than an ounce of marijuana was found.

Both men were arrested.

One man was charged with possession of marijuana and the other with resisting arrest.

Henry said about eight troopers responded to the incident along with Clinton Police.
