BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - A Bryan man has been arrested on outstanding warrants after a traffic stop near the intersection of N Harvey Mitchell Parkway and Sandy Point Road.

The traffic stop was made shortly after 6:00 p.m., Tuesday night. The road was closed as a precaution while police worked to arrest the suspect.

Police say Clifford Moten, 39, was wanted for burglary of a habitation and violating a protective order for stalking and assault.

According to the Bryan Police Department, officers used verbal commands at the occupants of the vehicle after the traffic stop.

Police say the driver exited the vehicle but Moten refused to get out and did not listen to the verbal commands of officers. BPD says deescalation techniques were used due to statements Moten was directing at officers. He was finally taken into custody just before midnight, according to authorities.

The road reopened early Wednesday morning. Police say they understand the road closure was a minor inconvenience for drivers but their main focus was to be able to bring the incident to a peaceful resolution.

The name of the driver in the vehicle was not identified by police.
