Motorist arrested after running from officers

Ruston police arrested a man early Monday on numerous charges following a traffic stop.

Sha’Quille D. Williams, 28, of Ruston was stopped at about 1:00 a.m. for driving a vehicle with an inoperable headlight. A records check indicated Williams was wanted on bench warrants for failing to appear in Ruston City Court. When officers attempted to arrest him, Williams fled on foot.

A TASER electronic control device was deployed to stop and arrest Williams.

A quantity of marijuana was also recovered during the arrest.

Williams was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for the warrants for failure to appear in court for two counts of no driver’s license, possession of marijuana, and no liability insurance and for charges stemming from the traffic stop–resisting an officer, second offense possession of marijuana, no driver’s license, failure to register a vehicle, and improper headlights.

Bail was said in $14,000.
