Atlantic City Police got there man again - after this one tried to escape police by hiding in a yucky, muddy marsh.

Police say they attempted to perform a traffic stop Wednesday Afternoon at Florida and Arctic Avenues after witnessing Julian Hinton break a number of traffic laws. As officers exited their car, Hinton drove away down Arctic Avenue:

As Hinton drove on Arctic Avenue, he struck two separate vehicles and drove on the sidewalk before turning on to Arkansas Avenue and entered the Atlantic City Expressway. Hinton pulled over on the Expressway due to a vehicle issue and ran from the vehicle before jumping a fence into the marsh. Officers pursued Hinton and after a search of the marsh and wooded area located Hinton and arrested him without further incident.

Police say they recovered a bad that Hinton dropped along the way - a bag that contained  240 bags of heroin and more than nine grams of cocaine.

Hinton, 27, of Delanco, was taken to the Atlantic County Jail and now faces a number of charges.
