Deputies: Man flushed drugs down toilet before arrest

UNION, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said they were searching an Union man's home for drugs and during his arrest, he bit an officer and had to be shocked with a Taser.

Union County deputies said they went to the home Of Jamie Hall, 34, along with Union police after they had received information that Hall had illegal drugs.

When Hall saw deputies enter his home, he threw what was believed to be crack cocaine in the toilet and flushed it, deputies said.

Officers were able to gather scales and a canister with small amounts of crack cocaine along with suboxone films and pills, which are Schedule II Narcotics, inside Hall's bedroom, deputies said.

Hall was arrested and while being searched, deputies seized $4,251 in cash. They said he also had a fake South Carolina ID on him.

Union police said during the arrest process, Hall bit an officer and tried to run away, forcing them to shock him with a Taser.

Deputies said Hall had hidden an AK-47 assault rifle across the street at his mother's apartment, which they seized with the consent of Hall's father. They said Hall is not allowed to possess any type of weapon because of his criminal record.

Hall was also wanted in York County and in Georgia on other charges. Hall was also charged with distribution of marijuana by the Union County Sheriff's Office for selling a quantity of marijuana to an undercover operative back in May 2012.
