Attempt to Evade Arrest and Tamper with Evidence Lands Local Man in Jail

Tyler Anthony Douglas, 38, of Sulphur Springs, was observed in a 2008 Dodge by a Hopkins County Deputy, who initiated a traffic stop. Douglas did not stop but instead fled the deputy.

During the pursuit, Douglas threw items out the car window. One deputy stopped to locate the items which had been tossed and the second deputy continued the pursuit until Douglas stopped in an apartment complex parking lot on the east side of Sulphur Springs. There, Douglas surrendered to the deputy. The items tossed from the vehicle were found to be a total of 3.1-grams of methamphetamine.

Douglas is charged with Violation of Probation Tamper Fabricate Physical Evidence with Intent to Impair, Evading Arrest in a Motor Vehicle, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Penalty Group 1, more than 1-gram but less than 4-grams and a new Tamper Fabricate Physical Evidence with Intent to Impair.

Douglas is in Hopkins County Jail held on bonds totaling $60,000.
