Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell told the Daily Corinthian the suspect was Jeremy Hollands, who remained jailed Monday afternoon and was awaiting bond to be set.
Hollands faces two felony charges - resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance and a third misdemeanor charge of improper tag, said Caldwell.
Sheriff’s deputies stopped a motorcycle at 4:45 a.m. Saturday on CR 520 in the Kossuth area after they noticed the tag was not visible.
After running a check on the motorcycle driver, it was discovered Hollands had a warrant for his arrest, said the sheriff.
“The subject tried to run, then fought with the deputies,” said Caldwell.
After the suspect was subdued, deputies found a bag of meth strapped to the motorcycle, he said.
“The tag on the motorcycle was covered up,” added the sheriff. “It was not visible.”
