Chatham-Kent police say a man caught breaching his recognizance faces even more charges after he resisted arrest early Monday morning.

Back in June, a man was released on bail, and part of his conditions of release was to stay at his home unless he was in the presence of his surety.

But shortly after midnight on Monday, police say officers spotted the man at an apartment building in Ridgetown, and his surety was nowhere to be seen.

The officers went to place the man under arrest for the breach, but while being escorted out of the building, police say the man began to fight with the officers in an attempt to flee.

One officer used a Taser to subdue the man, police say.

And during a search, the officers found the man to be in possession of a quantity of suspected methamphetamine.

A 32-Ridgetown man is charged with breach of recognizance, resisting a peace officer and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
