A Long Beach man was briefly hospitalized for minor injuries after he was arrested by Long Beach police Monday morning on suspicion of obstruction, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said Tuesday.

A Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) officer received an anonymous tip while on patrol at about 12:30AM Monday regarding a man involved with drug sales, said LBPD spokeswoman Marlene Arrona.

The officer responded to the area of 69th Street and Artesia and saw a man, later identified as 28-year-old Derrell James of Long Beach, matching the description provided.

The officer made contact with James and detained him to investigate, but James ran from the officer, resulting in a foot pursuit, Arrona said.

“The suspect was ordered to stop numerous times, however, he refused,” she said. “The officer caught up with the suspect, and was able to grab him, but the suspect continued to resist.”

Back-up officers were called in to assist and James was taken into custody.

Arrona said that because James failed to comply with officers’ orders and resisted arrest, officers used force to take him into custody.

James was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries he received as a result of the arrest before being cleared for booking.

One of the officers also sustained abrasions, a minor injury, Arrona said.

James was booked for obstruction, resisting and possession of drug paraphernalia and is being held at the Long Beach City Jail on $25,000 bail.

According to a jail records search by the Long Beach Post, James has been arrested at least four other times since March 2014.
