SEAFORD, Del. - A Seaford man was arrested after allegedly trying to flee on foot during a traffic stop.

A Delaware State Police Trooper stopped a Pontiac Bonneville, who was driving on Concord Road in Seaford, for allegedly almost hitting the patrol vehicle going the other direction. The Trooper stopped the car on Haven Drive, where the driver was identified as 26-year-old Ryan West. According to the report, West was acting erratically looking for paperwork, so the Trooper asked him to step out of the car for further questioning and DUI testing.

When West got out, Police say that he had his hands in his pocket, apparently trying to hide something, so the Trooper asked West to turn around for a pat down, but he immediately fled on foot. The chase reportedly ended shortly after, when West, who never took his hands out of pockets, fell to the ground. The Trooper then says he used his Taser, to stun West, who continued to resist until the Trooper physically subdued him.

Police reportedly found 22 baggies of suspected heroin, totaling .55 grams, along with $1,180 in suspected drug money.

West was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence of drugs, driving suspended or revoked, no proof of insurance or registration, and failure to maintain lane. He is being held at Sussex Correctional Center on $8,150 bond.
