ODESSA - An Odessa man's attempted escape from the cops caused a bit of excitement at Permian High School on Monday afternoon.

18-year-old Jose Canales was pulled over for a routine traffic not far from the school.

Police say he jumped out of his car and ran into Permian to give officers the slip.

It didn't take long for campus cops to take him into custody.

As it turns out, Canales had more incriminating evidence in his car than a traffic violation.

We're told Canales will be charged with drug possession, criminal trespassing on school property and evading arrest.
