When officers searched Cantu, they found .64 grams of suspected cocaine and tried to take him into custody.
“A physical struggle ensued which led to an officer from Probation and Parole sustaining a serious injury to his lower extremity,” Senior Corporal Jason Hatchell wrote in a release.
Cantu is being held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on a $190,200 cash bond.
