30-year-old Brendan Frey fled on foot from a traffic stop near the area of 10th & Washington last night.

Officer Erin Spilker says around 9pm, officers were searching Frey’s vehicle with probably cause, when he fled on foot.

Officers gave chase, where they tackled Frey in the street. Frey continued to struggle with officers causing an officer to use his taser twice. The first attempt did not subdue the resisting suspect.

Ofc. Spilker says several knives were located in Frey’s vehicle, along with a glass pipe, meth, a scale and multiple pills.

He was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Resisting Arrest, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
