The first warrant was for the charges of Misdemeanor Resisting a Public Officer, Misdemeanor Simple Possession of Marijuana, and Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana Paraphernalia. According to the warrant, Liles refused to stop running when commanded to by the arresting officer. The paraphernalia mentioned in the warrant was a set of scales and a blunt wrap.

The firearm in question is a Taurus .40 caliber handgun which the warrant lists as, “property of an unknown person.” The Possession of a Firearm by a Felon charge was prompted by the fact that Liles pleaded guilty to and was convicted of Felony Breaking and Entering of a Motor Vehicle in 2019.
