The officer asked the woman what she was doing out so late and why she was so nervous. The woman admitted that she had outstanding arrest warrants. The officer verified the warrants and told the woman she was under arrest. The woman said "no!" and began running from the officer, who gave chase. He saw her throwing numerous narcotics from her pockets and the waistband of her pants as she ran.
