Video: Florida Woman Eats a Big Bag of Weed in the Back of a Cop Car
A wily woman busted for DUI and weed possession slipped out of her handcuffs and "ate the evidence." If only she could have eaten the surveillance tape.
Ever considered scarfing down a bag of marijuana while being held for a DUI in the back of a police cruiser? Just remember: Those things have surveillance cameras. Florida resident Tavish Smith learned this the hard way. She was pulled over earlier this month after she crashed her truck while driving the wrong way on the highway. After a state trooper cuffed her, she reportedly “tried to flirt her way out of trouble” by calling the officer “handsome” (who wouldn’t?).
The trooper—who was not swayed—cuffed her, put her in the back seat of the cop car, and searched her car, where he found and confiscated a sandwich bag full of weed. But his clever captive then managed to slip out of her handcuffs while the trooper wasn’t looking, and eat the evidence.
Reportedly, the state trooper figured it out for various reasons:
1) The marijuana was there, and then it was gone: “Bags of weed just don’t go missing inside a police car” he said.
2) She had “pot crumbs on her hands and face.”
3) The whole thing was caught on tape (below).
Whoops. Smith was facing felony charges for driving under the influence and a hit-and-run, as well as “eating the evidence.” She was released after posting bail, and is probably still high.
