A 36-year-old Winfield man was arrested after trying to hide methamphetamine in his shorts during a traffic stop, then resisting when the state trooper attempted to arrest him, according to arrest reports.
Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Warren Williamson reportedly stopped a Toyota Tundra on Interstate 30 west at mile marker 117 for having an expired registration and no front license plate.
As Williamson approached the vehicle, he noted the driver and lone occupant concealing an unknown item in the front of his shorts. The highway patrolman had him step out of the pickup and attempted a frisk search of the man for weapons.
When Williamson told the man he was under arrest, the man allegedly “attempted to turn away from me and forcefully pulled away from me,” the trooper alleged in arrest reports. Consequently, the man was taken to the ground and placed under arrest.
The man was determined to have a glass pipe and a small clear bag containing a crystal-like substance Williamson identified from his experience in law enforcement as methamphetamine.
The man, identified in arrest reports as 36-year-old Bradley McQueen of Winfield, was reportedly cleared by medical staff and released to jail staff. He was booked into jail for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance and resisting arrest, search or transport, according to arrest reports.
Deputies Richard Brantley and Patterson were also dispatched to assist at the location when DPS dispatchers requested assistance for Williamson, when dealing with the reportedly combative person.
