A Racine man was arrested Wednesday after fleeing a traffic stop at dangerous speeds in January with a drug-related warrant already out for his apprehension.

Marcus Anthony Bryant sold cocaine on three separate occasions in November of 2016 to a confidential informant being used by Racine’s Metro Drug Unit totaling 2.7 grams. On January 11, a Racine police officer pulled over a black BMW identified as having two wanted occupants, according to a criminal complaint.

Once pulled over, Bryant was identified as the driver. The officer smelled marijuana in the vehicle and asked Bryant to exit the vehicle, who refused. Bryant sped off away from the stop. Police pursued the car and watched as Bryant nearly collided with another vehicle as it sped through an intersection during the chase that reached speeds of 80 mph.

Bryant is being charged with multiple felony counts for both cases: two counts of bail jumping, fleeing an officer, and 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety, along with three counts of delivering cocaine.
