DOVER, Del. - A man is accused of running from police and tampering with evidence, while being arrested on drug charges in a Dover hotel room.

A joint investigation with both Dover and Delaware State Police lead to the arrest of Augustine Butcher, 36, at the Comfort Inn and Suites on Leipsic Road. He was wanted on outstanding warrants from Smyrna Police, and numerous bench warrants from court.
