After subduing and taking Bratcher into custody, it was determined that he was manifestly under the influence of alcohol. A bag he was carrying during the chase was searched at the scene, which yielded pill bottles, one containing suspected marijuana, the other, suspected marijuana seeds.

Other items found in the bag were a syringe, pipe and a spoon with drug residue.

He is charged with fleeing or evading police (on foot), alcohol intoxication in a public place, third or greater offense in 12 months; possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
