Traffic Stop Leads to Two Arrests
By West Kentucky Star Staff
METROPOLIS - Two suspects were arrested by Metropolis Police after an altercation on Thursday.

A Metropolis Sergeant stopped an SUV on Johnson Street after seeing that the passenger was 24-year-old David S. Hines of Grantsburg. He was wanted on a warrant for failure to appear in court on a marijuana and drug paraphernalia charge.

As the Sergeant was attempting to take Hines into custody, the driver, 30-year-old Chelsea Marie McBride, kept trying to get out of the vehicle. Police say she was told numerous times to get back into the vehicle while Hines was being arrested, but was uncooperative, including one time when she pushed open the door, causing it to strike an officer. When she was detained, McBride allegedly resisted and had to be forcibly taken into custody. A search of her led to seizure of a syringe containing suspected meth, as well as other drug paraphernalia.

Hines was arrested on the warrant. McBride was charged with resisting arrest, obstructing a peace officer, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were taken to the Massac County Detention Center.
