RANKIN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Rankin County manhunt  for a suspect who assaulted an officer has ended. 

Sources say a female office with the Florence Police Department made a traffic stop Wednesday night when she noticed the driver or possibly an occupant had a hypodermic needle.  

She ordered him to drop it and that is when the officer was pushed down.

The suspect took off on foot.

Officers including a K-9 unit searched the area and that suspect is now in custody, caught around 9:30 p.m.  

Several agencies including the Rankin County Sheriff's Department were involved in the search.
