SAN ANTONIO – A man was arrested early Tuesday morning after he apparently tried to run from a Balcones Heights officer during a routine traffic stop.

The officer pulled over the suspect's vehicle for speeding around 3 a.m. at Interstate 10 and Vance Jackson.

A K-9 officer detected marijuana inside the vehicle and the suspect attempted to flee on foot. He was quickly caught and treated for injuries related to the arrest.

Police say he will be charged with possession of narcotics and evading arrest once he is released from the hospital. His name has not been released.
