Tylan Dwight Chambers, 22 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he was found with drugs following a police chase.
Officers said that when they attempted a traffic stop Chambers fled into a residential neighborhood.
After finally stopping he was found to have been driving intoxicated.
Police said that they found a liquor bottle and beer bottle inside his car. They added that Chambers placed a green film and marijuana in an effort to prevent police from finding the drugs.
He then allegedly admitted to eating some of the drugs in an effort to destroy evidence.
After arriving at the jail Chambers was found in possession of another bag of marijuana.
Chambers is charged with possession of marijuana, DUI, crossing the guard line with drugs, tampering with evidence, attempting to elude police, open container violation, window tint violation, and failure to maintain lane
