Convicted drug felon Anthony Bryant was arrested by Madison Precinct officers after a months-long investigation into a heroin distribution scheme.
Bryant, 27, allegedly met buyers in public places like parking lots outside of department stores and restaurants. Undercover officers saw Bryant leave a Madison motel and travel to a nearby restaurant on Tuesday. According to police, when they approached Bryant in a vehicle, he rammed his Dodge Charger into the marked car in an effort to escape.
Bryant said he didn’t have any heroin, but an investigation revealed 25 foil-wrapped pieces of the drug inside his rectum, according to a Metro Nashville Police Department release. A search of his motel room yielded more than a pound of heroin and 47 counterfeit $100 bills.
Bryant is presently being held without bond on felony heroin charges, aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and probation violation charges.
