BILOXI, Miss. —

Police say a man who fled from a Mississippi traffic stop was apparently so focused on getting away he unknowingly ran into a law enforcement academy.

Biloxi Police Chief John Miller Police Chief John Miller tells The Sun-Herald (http://bit.ly/1wS5t9H ) 30-year-old Roger Beasley Jr. was stopped by officers last Wednesday on U.S. 90 in the city. Miller's statement says Beasley jumped from his vehicle and ran.

According to police, Beasley didn't notice marked police cars outside the Harrison County Law Enforcement Training Academy. He says Beasley ran into the building while training was in session -- and arrested.

Authorities say Beasley was booked on charges including possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, resisting arrest and careless driving. He's free on bond. It wasn't immediately known if Beasley has an attorney.
