HANNIBAL (WGEM) — A Hannibal man was arrested Tuesday morning for possession and distribution of marijuana and resisting arrest after he tried to flee from police.

Anderson was placed on a 24 hour hold for resisting arrest, distribution of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.

He was cited for driving while revoked, failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, failing to stop at a stop sign and failing to yield right-of-way to oncoming traffic.

A warrant was issued for Distributing a Controlled Substance.

Anderson’s bond was set at $50,000 cash or surety.

Zerbonia stated that Anderson has since posted bond and has been released.
