A traffic stop in Troy turns into a major arrest.

Police say Cedric Lamar Poole was pulled over Thursday around 11 am, because his license plate didn't appear to match the car he was driving.

Poole looked like he was going to pull over when he began zig-zagging the car down several streets and through a construction zone.

The car then left the road and went into the grass of an apartment complex.

Poole jumped out of the car as it went into a fence and off a hill.

He then swung at an officer, struck him in the head and fled on foot across the street.

Poole is now charged with second degree assault, a switched tag, attempting to elude a police officer, reckless endangerment and driving without a license.

His bond totals more than 25 thousand dollars.
