A Murphysboro, Illinois man has been arrested after police say he tried to flee after a traffic stop on June 20 at 12:25 a.m.
Darius M. Harris, 24, was charged with driving while license suspended, fleeing to elude a police officer and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. He was taken to the Jackson County Jail.
According to the Carbondale Police Department, they pulled over a vehicle in the 300 block of East Grand Avenue for a traffic violation. They say the vehicle briefly stopped in a nearby parking lot and the driver was identified as Harris, who was found to have a suspended Illinois driver's license.
