FULTON - Fulton police arrested a man for multiple charges after he fled on foot during a traffic stop. A Fulton Police Department official confirmed Saturday this is the same man arrested three weeks ago for driving recklessly and leading authorities on a car chase.

Fulton police said officers arrested 30-year-old Clayton Craddock Friday at 10:30 p.m. after he ran away while officers were trying to arrest him for driving with a suspended license.

Fulton police said officers pulled Craddock over in the area of Nichols Street, north of Fifth Street, for not stopping at a stop sign. Officers chased Craddock and caught him in the 100 block of West Fifth Street.

As they were arresting him, Fulton police said the officers found Craddock had a prohibited weapon, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. They also found what they believed was meth, suspected prescription narcotics and marijuana all packaged for distribution in Craddock's car, along with packaging materials, a digital scale and other items that indicated Craddock intended to sell the drugs.

Fulton police said officers arrested Craddock for possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, felony resisting arrest, assault on law enforcement, unlawful use of a weapon and driving on a suspended license.

Officers said they took Craddock to the Callaway County Jail on a $35,000 cash-only bond.

Fulton police said more charges could be pending.

Three weeks ago, on May 8, Fulton police said officers arrested Craddock for property damage, driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest by flight after he wouldn't pull over when officers tried to stop him on Route HH. Fulton said Craddock drove recklessly into oncoming traffic and threw various items from the window of his vehicle.
