Bryan police ran into a bit of a struggle trying to arrest two men Friday afternoon.
About 3:30pm in the afternoon, Bryan police were called out to
Sue Haswell Park where two men were reportedly smoking marijuana near the basketball courts.
Once police arrived, they found 19 year old Justin Desean (de-shawn) Newton who, according to police, smelled like marijuana.
After finding the drugs on Newton, police say he then tried to run,
and that's when the two officers grabbed him, then Newton allegedly began hitting both officers in the face.
Newton was arrested and charged with two counts of assault,
possession of marijuana, and evading arrest.
His bond was set to more than $32 thousand dollars.
