A 23-year-old man -- who was arrested in October 2017 in connection to a deadly shooting -- was arrested early Tuesday on a first-degree felony drug charge, authorities said.

According to College Station police, Traigh Liam Gonzalez was being watched by local authorities as he made his way through College Station. Gonzalez was pulled over on a traffic stop and police noted in a report the smell of marijuana could be detected. A K-9 was brought in and alerted on the car, which police then searched. Authorities said 28.2 grams of cocaine, which was packaged for sale, was found in the car.

According to previous stories published in The Eagle, Gonzalez was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection to a shooting at Flats on 12 apartments that left Christopher Maurice Idlebird Jr. dead in October 2017.

Gonzalez is charged with delivery of 28.2 grams of cocaine, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison, and evading arrest, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail. He was released from the Brazos County Jail on $17,000 bond.
