A man faces drug and weapons charges after he ran from police as the officer was trying to tell him he had a taillight out.The suspect, Ronnie Jene Totherow, 39, has been bound to the grand jury on charges of evading arrest, tampering with evidence, possession of drugs, possession of a weapon, and driving on a revoked license.Totherow went awry of the law just after midnight when sheriff’s deputy Brystal Davis noticed there was a taillight out on the suspect’s 1996 Crown Victoria near the intersection of Short Mountain and West Green Hill roads.“I observed a broken right, rear taillight,” deputy Davis recalled, noting the vehicle pulled into a nearby business. “I attempted to pull alongside the car and advise the driver of his broken taillight without initiating a traffic stop.”Totherow reportedly bolted when he saw the deputy approach, gunning his Ford down West Green Hill Road.“He attempted to evade several times by swerving into oncoming traffic,” Davis noted, adding the suspect also began throwing things out his window as he sped away. “He slowed down, opened the driver-side door, and threw a heavy object out.”The object hit the deputy’s vehicle.
