During the investigation, officers detained a man for possession of a legend or prescription drug. The man then attempted to assault officers and fled on foot. He was captured approximately a quarter-mile from the original location and was arrested for obstructing. It also was found he was wanted on a felony arrest warrant and had lied about his name. He was booked into Pierce County jail for third-degree assault and obstructing a public servant.
