A man was arraigned on a charge of possession of cocaine in an amount of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on Tuesday.

Andre Avante Fairley, 25, was arrested on Sunday by Killeen police.

Fairley was stopped by police along 10th Street in Killeen after he was seen by an officer walking in the street instead of on the sidewalk. When officers talked to Fairley, he seemed nervous and would not tell the officer where he was walking to, according to the affidavit. When an officer tried to detain him, he tried to ran away, police said.

The officer maintained her grip on Fairley, and did not allow him to run away. After Fairley was in custody, police searched him and found several white rocks in the pocket of his jacket, according to the affidavit.

The substance tested positive for about 7 grams of cocaine, in the form of crack, according to the affidavit.

Fairley was held in the Bell County Jail on $50,000 bond as of 5 p.m. Wednesday.
