Affidavit: Nacogdoches man destroyed evidence by flushing contraband

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department arrested a 32-year-old man Thursday in connection to allegations that he flushed contraband down a toilet when they arrived to check out a 911 call about disorderly conduct.

Bryan Joseph Broussard, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony tampering with or fabricating physical evidence charge. No bail amount has been set on his charge yet.

According to the arrest affidavit, NPD officers went to a home in the 5800 block of East Main Street to check out a report that Broussard was damaging property in his mother's house at about 7:50 p.m. Sunday. When they got there, the officers noticed Broussard run into the bathroom, the affidavit stated.

Broussard allegedly admitted to flushing contraband down the toilet, and after he was arrested at the scene, he was taken to the county jail.
