Texas man chokes on marijuana during traffic stop
A Texas man recently tried to eat his stash of marijuana during a traffic stop however he ended up choking on it instead.
Quinton Duane Baker, 38, was stopped by police in north Austin for an undisclosed reason according to KRON.
As the officer approached the car, he stated that he could smell marijuana. The officer also said he saw small green leaves on Baker’s shirt and that the suspect was “feverishly chewing something in his mouth.”
The officer commanded Baker to exit the vehicle and open his mouth. As Baker exited his vehicle, he quickly took several drinks. As Baker exited the vehicle he began to choke on the contents in his mouth and spit it up.
Within a pool of spit on the ground the officers collected what they suspect was marijuana.
The officer said he also saw a green substance in Baker’s cheek and in his teeth. Baker has been charged with tampering with physical evidence, a third-degree felony.
Texas Department of Public Safety records show Baker has two previous convictions, including one for possession of marijuana and another for evading arrest.
