BILOXI, Miss., July 22 (UPI) -- A Mississippi man who took off following a traffic stop in Biloxi forgot that it's important to look before you leap, and he ended up running into a police academy.

To make matters even worse for Roger Beasley Jr., there was an active training session taking place at the Harrison County Law Enforcement Training Academy when he dashed through the doors.

The 30-year-old apparently didn't notice, or disregarded, the marked police cars that were parked outside the training facility.

Biloxi Police Chief John Miller Police Chief John Miller told the Sun-Herald that an officer who knew Beasley didn't have a license pulled him over after spotting him driving.

After unknowingly running into the academy, Beasley was arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, resisting arrest, no driver's license, careless driving, improper lane change, resisting arrest and failure to comply.
