27-year-old Corry Dexter Kranz of Austin was charged with 5th degree drug possession after he was arrested on June 13, 2017. An Austin police officer tried to pick Kranz up on an outstanding warrant and says Kranz biked away, going the wrong way down an I-90 exit ramp before he was tackled by another officer.

He pleaded guilty Wednesday. Sentencing is set for March 16.
