Members of the police department's Street Crimes Unit say Darius Bacchus approached them with an offer to sell illegal drugs.
The officers accompanied the man back to a vehicle where the illegal sales were reportedly happening.
Police say Bacchus ran from the officers and tossed away a package of cocaine. After he was apprehended, officers discovered that he was also wanted for allegedly violating the terms of probation.
Bacchus turns 20 years old today.
