A man who allegedly jumped from a moving car to get away from police is charged with drug violations, according to Washington County District Court records.

Anthony Allen Williams, 27, of 35 Elgin Blvd., allegedly jumped from his vehicle while it was moving when police tried to initiate a traffic stop Thursday about 7:50 p.m. in the 100 block of Ross Street, according to a charging document. Williams had not used his turn signal before turning, according to the document.

Williams' vehicle struck a parked vehicle after he jumped out, according to the document.

After Williams was arrested, police searched his Elgin Boulevard address, which they had been watching as part of a drug investigation. During a search of the home, police found about $1,000 and a dinner plate with a razor blade, digital scales, plastic bags and a plastic bag with several large pieces of cocaine, according to the document.
