NEW: Traffic stop, foot chase lead to West Palm man’s arrest


What started as an early morning traffic stop turned into a foot chaseWe’ that ended with a West Palm Beach man’s arrest on multiple charges Wednesday.

Riviera Beach police arrested Kenneth F. Glenn, 27, who allegedly had the “strong odor of fresh marijuana” in his car. He faces possession charges for marijuana, cocaine, oxycodone and fentanyl. He was also accused of battery on a police officer after after he fought with one while resisting arrest, according to a police arrest report made public Thursday.

Police reportedly used a Taser to subdue Glenn after chasing him through the backyards of nearby homes.

Authorities say the situation began shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday when officers noticed a car with dark tinted windows on the 1300 block of West 29th Street, north of Blue Heron Boulevard and west of President Barack Obama Highway. The car stopped in front a home and an officer activated his police lights as a passenger got out of Glenn’s vehicle.

Two officers noted the smell of marijuana, according to the arrest report. They also learned that Glenn was driving with a suspended license.

As officers tried to place him in handcuffs, Glenn reportedly pulled away and managed to free himself. He ran for about 30 feet to the backyard of a home on West 28th Street before an officer caught up to him.

Glenn continued to resist, punching and kicking at the officer, the report said. He ran again and jumped the fence into the backyard of a home on West 27th Street.

The chase finally ended with an officer deploying his Taser.

Glenn was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach for medical clearance. He remained the Palm Beach County Jail early Friday in lieu of $135,000 bail.
