As the vehicle came to a stop, investigators observed the front seat passenger identified as Rashad Antonio James, 26, of Madison, throw a clear plastic bag containing marijuana from the vehicle. James was ordered out of the vehicle and placed under arrest.
Once James was handcuffed he began to resist efforts to search him. James was transported to the Madison County Jail where he continued to resist officers by attempting to bite and spit on them.
James was charged with resisting with violence, possession of marijuana less that 20 grams and possession of synthetic marijuana.
