It perhaps wasn't the most well thought out escape.

Police say a man handed over his license and registration at a sobriety checkpoint during the weekend, then peeled out and sped away, almost hitting an officer.

Police eventually pulled over the 32-year-old man and reported finding marijuana in his vehicle.

He was charged with driving under the influence of drugs, possession of drugs, disobeying a police officer and reckless conduct.
