A Lodi man was arrested Thursday after police say he was found in possession of metal knuckles.

At approximately 1:09 p.m., Joshua Michael Sampson, 30, was arrested on the 1900 block of Mimosa Drive, according to Lt. Chris Jacobson of the Lodi Police Department.

Jacobson said officers had a search warrant for Sampson, but before they served the warrant they saw him drive off.

Officers, however, caught Sampson and approached his car, where they found metal knuckles and a controlled substance in his car, Jacobson said.

Sampson faces charges of manufacturing, selling and/or possessing metal knuckles, which is a felony.

He also faces charges of possessing and transporting a controlled substance for sale, having a controlled substance while armed and driving recklessly with a suspended license, among other charges.

He is currently in custody at the Lodi jail.
