Wallace was arrested Sunday morning after a deputy pulled him over for going 26-miles per hour over the speed limit on 1st Avenue.

Deputies said that he was driving with a suspended license, had an open container of liquor and ran from the scene.

Wallace said that the deputy punched him in the eye, and plans to file a complaint. And he will continue to be involved in the mentorship program.
