The arrest happened just after 9:00 p.m. when officers pulled over a 41-year-old male on Interstate 29.
When the deputy approached the man's vehicle, he began fighting with the deputy and fled to a field near KCI airport property.
After a short chase, the suspect was caught before he could make it onto the airport's runway.
Both the man and a deputy suffered minor injuries in the chase.
Officers say they uncovered about six pounds of marijuana in the suspect's car.
