Man fights deputies in meth bust

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Two men have been caught with meth in Worth County, and one of them tried to fight officers.

31-year-old Joseph Reynolds and 29-year-old Wallace Strickland are charged with felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

Worth County Sheriff's officials say deputies arrested them after a traffic stop early Thursday morning on Georgia Highway 32. That's when Strickland put up a fight.

"No one was injured," said worth Co. Sheriff Jeff Hobby. "But after the struggle and all when they did a pat down on the violator they found 1.3 grams of meth on him."

Strickland is also charged with three counts of felony obstruction.
