LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Scott County man is facing several serious charges after police say he tried to get away from officers during a traffic stop.

According to a news release from Indiana State Police, it happened just after 8:30 Wednesday night on US 50 near Walnut Street when two state troopers tried to stop a Buick LeSabre driven by 32-year-old Otha Bryant from Austin, Ind. Police say Bryant ended up losing control of his vehicle near the intersection of CR 600 East and US 60 and crashing into railroad tracks at Hangman’s Crossing.

Police say Bryant got out of the car after crashing and tried to get away on foot before he was taken into custody. 

During a search of Bryant's vehicle, police say they found more than 10 grams of methamphetamine "and other items associated with the dealing of methamphetamine."

Police say Bryant was treated for minor injuries before being arrested. He now faces numerous charges including resisting law enforcement in a vehicle, resisting law enforcement on foot, dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, operating while intoxicated, and driving while suspended.
