Man faces drug charges following alleged pedestrian violation

A Florida man has been accused of committing a drug crime. His arrest on drug charges took place on a recent Friday. It occurred right after police had detained the individual for committing an unspecified pedestrian violation.

A police claims he spotted the man, 22, breaking pedestrian laws and thus confronted him. He requested the man's identification. Though he initially refused, the man subsequently gave the police officer his Florida identification card.

Authorities claim that while the officer was checking on the identification number, the man suddenly began to run away from him. The officer chased the man and was able to tackle him. A search of the man is said to have resulted in the discovery and seizure of marijuana and a smoking device. A pouch containing some cash and a hard brown substance were also found; police say the substance ended up testing positive for heroin. The man was charged with possessing a drug with no prescription, possessing marijuana and obstructing a police officer without violence.

As this case moves forward, he might be given the chance, alongside his criminal defense counsel, to negotiate a plea deal with the prosecution. If the prosecutors offer him a plea bargain, the terms of the proposed agreement must be weighed against his chances of prevailing at trial. In that manner, the defendant will likely be in the best position to decide how to proceed concerning the drug charges. An in-depth examination of the evidence that the prosecution plans to offer in support of its accusations may be a chief area of focus for defense counsel in this type of case.
