Martin resisted arrest by trying to pull away and hide his hands so that he couldn’t be put in handcuffs. A search of Martin’s person yielded a leafy substance consistent with marijuana with a weight of 12.2 grams. Martin was also found to have a revoked driver’s license and an active probation violation warrant. Martin was taken into custody without further incident.
