MESA, Ariz. -

A man was arrested after he allegedly assaulted officers and was caught with marijuana on Wednesday night.

Mesa Police were looking for a robbery suspect when they found 53-year-old Timothy Doyle, who matched the suspect's description.

According to officers, Doyle ran away from them, but was eventually caught and tased.

Doyle threw a bag inside an apartment before police could take it from him.

Officers determined Doyle wasn't the suspect they were looking for, but told him not to enter the apartment until they had investigated.

Suddenly, police say Doyle ran into the guarded apartment and began to struggle with an officer.

Doyle was taken into custody, allegedly injuring two officers during the arrest.

Police say the bag Doyle had thrown into the apartment contained marijuana.

He faces charges of two counts of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana.

    Public officials and safety advocates worry there will be more drivers high on pot and a big increase in traffic deaths as states liberalize marijuana laws. It's not clear, though, whether those concerns are merited. Researchers are divided on the question. Studies of marijuana's effects show the drug can slow decision-making, decrease peripheral vision and impede multitasking.
