A California man was arrested Tuesday after he reportedly defied orders from a deputy who had pulled over his vehicle.

Christopher Winter, 34, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia, the Moniteau County Sheriff's Office reports.

He was taken to the county jail, where bond was set at $35,000.

A deputy pulled over Winter's vehicle in California for license plate and stop sign violations, according to a sheriff's report. After stopping at the U.S. Post Office, Winter exited the vehicle and began to walk away, ignoring the deputy's order to come back. Winter entered the building with the deputy following and again refused an order to return to his vehicle. The deputy then grabbed Winter, who resisted, and placed him under arrest.

Deputies report they recovered methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia while searching Winter, and after K-9 officer Apollo arrived and indicated possible drugs in the vehicle, they searched and recovered a loaded handgun and loaded shotgun.
