Jose Angel Hinojosa Jr. was arrested on the 1100 block of Madison for evading arrest with vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and tampering with evidence on Thursday. While Officer Juan Reyes was on patrol on North King Street he observed a vehicle with no tail lights traveling southbound on King Street. The officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop.
