Alleged "litter-bug" in jail for resisting arrest

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Police say a man wanted on a warrant for littering, now has a lot more to worry about.

Officers say a man ran from them near Broadway Avenue, just off of Hollywood Avenue, in Shreveport

Police tell us a concerned citizen called because they knew the man had a warrant out for his arrest.

After a short foot chase through a lot, police arrested the man, only to find his warrant was for a littering violation.

"When we went to pick him up, he took off running from us, so now he's charged with resisting," says Officer Norris with Shreveport Police.

Police booked the man in the Shreveport City Jail.
