YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A man accused of assaulting a police officer and swallowing drugs during his arrest pleaded not guilty Friday in Youngstown Municipal Court.

Robert Anderson, 38, was arrested earlier this week following a traffic stop. Police say Anderson was a passenger in the car and fled when it was pulled over.

Officers chased Anderson on foot and caught him, but not before he swallowed several pills. He began vomiting in the cruiser and officers called an ambulance to the scene.

Bond was set Friday at $25,000.
