A Knoxville man allegedly fled from Oak Ridge police Friday night once in a car and twice on foot and was found in a bathroom shower near suspected marijuana and crack cocaine that was in a toilet, authorities said.
Anthony S. Gulley, 25, fled from an attempted traffic stop just before midnight Friday and ran into a home on Houston Avenue, according to warrants filed in Anderson County General Sessions Court.
While searching the home, an Oak Ridge Police Department officer found Gulley behind shower curtains inside a hallway bathroom and saw two plastic baggies of a “green leafy material suspected as marijuana inside the toilet beside the shower,” court affidavits said. “Also inside the toilet was a plastic baggie of multiple whitish hard substances suspected as crack cocaine.”
After Gulley was arrested and police attempted to put him into a patrol car, he allegedly fled on foot while handcuffed and was apprehended as he tried to open the door of a South Dillard Avenue home, where he is not a resident, the affidavits said.
Gulley has been charged with aggravated burglary, felony evading, tampering with evidence, and escape from custody. He remained jailed Monday night, and his bond had not been set.
