Around 9 p.m., Paris police officers pulled over 26-year-old Darrion Biggers in the 1300 block of Fitzhugh Avenue for a traffic violation.
Paris Police Lt. John Berry said Biggers ran from the officers during the stop. As he was running, Berry said officers observed him throwing methamphetamine.
“Biggers was apprehended in the 1200 block of 8th Street N.E.,” Berry said.
He was charged with manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance and evading arrest. He is in Lamar County Jail in lieu of $12,500 in bonds.
