MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Semmes PD had to put a spit mask on a man in order to arrest him on Monday, according to police.

Authorities said they attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle being driven by Tyhre Webster, 24, for reckless driving on Moffett and Schillinger.

Webster refused to stop and a pursuit ensued that ended on Pretty Branch Drive, according to officials.

Police said Webster was arrested for eluding, possession of marijuana, and reckless endangerment due to the fact there was a female passenger and two small children in the car.

Webster had severe anger issues which led to officers placing a spit mask on him before taking him to jail, according to Semmes PD.
