LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin Police arrested a Pollok man Monday who is accused of trashing six ounces of marijuana after a rollover wreck on US 69 North on Dec. 3.

Nicholas Everett Tyler, 32, is charged with state-jail felony possession of marijuana.

According to the arrest affidavit, DPS responded to a one-vehicle accident on the morning of Dec. 3, in which Tyler was heading south on US 69 in a Chevy Blazer, on his way to work at a Lufkin McDonalds. Troopers say he wrecked after losing control on the wet road, sliding into a ditch and rolling over.

Tyler crawled out of the wreckage and was carrying a white plastic bag, according to the affidavit. He walked into a nearby Polks' store and into the mens' restroom. Witnesses say Tyler then left the restroom without the bag. The trooper found the bag with blood on it inside the trash can and found several clear plastic bags inside containing marijuana, according to the affidavit.

Tyler was taking to a Lufkin hospital for treatment and the trooper obtained a warrant for his arrest on Dec. 6.

According to a Lufkin Police report, an officer encountered Tyler outside Walmart at 4:01 p.m. Monday. The officer arrived to handle a criminal trespass incident reported by an employee, who believed Tyler matched the description of someone who was not allowed at the store. The officer determined Tyler was not the one who had the criminal trespass warning, but learned of the warrant for Tyler's arrest and took him to the Angelina County Jail.

He's being held on a $2,000 bail.
