NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

A North Charleston man was arrested on drug charges after police say he had 13 grams of marijuana hidden in his car.

Julius Quintez Manigault was arrested after a North Charleston Police officer pulled him over for speeding. The suspect almost hit a cyclist and was driving without a license, according to the arresting officer.

A police report accuses Manigault of reaching towards the car's center console after the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle. The officer said he struggled with the suspect and had to use a police dog to catch him.

The officer said he found two grams of marijuana hidden in his right sock. A search of Manigault's car turned up 4 grams of marijuana hidden in the center console, as well as 7 grams of marijuana hidden in the spare tire well, according to a police report.

Manigault was treated for a dog bite at Trident Hospital and taken to the Charleston County Detention Center. He is charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, driving under suspension, and assault on police while resisting arrest.

He has not gone through bond court.
