A man led police on a foot chase after they smelled the scent of marijuana wafting from his car.The suspect, Zachary Chase Bryant, 23, is charged with resisting arrest, possession of drugs and, in a separate incident, initiating the process to manufacture meth.He was arrested when his Volvo was sighted by McMinnville Master Sgt. Kenneth Seagraves as he was answering the call of a suspicious vehicle. A computer check revealed the outstanding meth warrant prompting the officer to approach the car.“I could smell marijuana coming from inside the vehicle,” Seagraves said in his warrant, noting the suspect ran away on foot as the officer approached. “After a short chase, I had to wrestle him to the ground in order to subdue him and place him under arrest.”A subsequent search of the suspect’s car netted a metal container with marijuana inside.
