A Killeen man was charged Friday after running from police when officers attempted to perform a traffic stop, according to an arrest affidavit.

Anthony Carl Williams II, 28, was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on a felony charge of evading arrest or detention in a vehicle.

According to an arrest affidavit, a Killeen police officer attempted to stop Williams Wednesday after he failed to signal while turning from Hereford Lane onto Elms Road.

The report stated the officer got behind Williams and activated his lights, and as Williams continued to drive the officer activated his siren. While being pursued, Williams threw “what appeared to be” narcotics, marijuana and rolling papers out the window. Additional Killeen police officers engaged in the pursuit along with state troopers. Williams then stopped the vehicle and was taken into custody.

According to the affidavit, police found Xanax and marijuana in Williams’ vehicle as well as in the areas where officers observed him throwing items out the window.

His bail was set at $20,000.

In unrelated cases, Cooke also arraigned the following:

James Walter Barnes III, 24, on a felony charge of possession of methamphetamine, less than 1 gram. His bail was set at $20,000.

Terrell Jefferson, 28, on a felony charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. His bail was set as $25,000.
