Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A state police investigator was hurt during the apprehension of a man wanted in connection with a probe into possible heroin sales in Endicott.

Authorities say two people have been charged in the case.

Police say 43-year-old Morris Simmons of Cleveland Avenue wouldn’t stop for officers who tried to pull over a vehicle he was driving.

They say Simmons ran from the vehicle when it became disabled on Harrison Avenue.

Officials say Simmons was taken into custody after a brief struggle. The state police investigator who was injured was treated at Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton.

Simmons and 31-year-old Wixie Nickerson were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Simmons also faces counts of assault, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest.

Police say they confiscated heroin and marijuana found during a search of the suspects’ residence.

Simmons and Nickerson were arraigned in Union town court and sent to Broome County Jail without bail.
