DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Decatur police reported that two men were charged on Thursday following a problematic arrest.

Around 4:30 p.m., officers executed a search warrant at 304 12th Avenue Northwest and found a quantity of marijuana next to Criagery Miller, 43, and Demetree Moore, 34. Police said Moore ran away when they approached, but officers found him hiding at a nearby residence after a chase on foot.

When police tried to detain Moore, authorities said he kicked an officer in the face and continued to fight until a K-9 was deployed to end the fight. Police said additional officers assisted and handcuffed Moore.

Moore and the attacked police officer were both transported to the Decatur Morgan Hospital ER, treated and released.

Moore was arrested and charged with assault, loitering, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest. Miller was arrested and charged with three counts of distribution of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence and resisting arrest.

Miller and Moore were booked in the Decatur City Jail. Miller's bond was set at $17,000. Moore's bond was set at $21,500, of which $20,000 was required to be in cash.

Both Miller and Moore were later transferred to the Morgan County Jail.
