    A West Palm Beach, Florida, man listed his occupation on an arrest report as "drug dealer,'' police say.

    Deputies say 25-year-old Robert Phillips was arrested Tuesday after he cut in front of an unmarked Palm Beach County Sheriff's car and nearly caused a crash. A records check found that Phillips was driving a stolen car.

    The Palm Beach Post reports the detective followed Phillips and watched as he engaged in a drug transaction. Deputies in marked cars caught up to Phillips, who fled at a high rate of speed.

    Deputies eventually arrested Phillips, who was in possession of 22 grams of heroin and $2,316 in cash. A search of his car yielded 5.3 grams of crack cocaine.

    He's facing multiple drug charges and remains in jail on a $242,000 bond.

    There is no indication Phillips has an attorney.
