Christian V. Phillips is not likely to drop off any more goodies for the police of Lake Worth, Texas. Phillips, 18, brought cookies from Mothers Against Drunk Driving to various police stations as part of his community service. He was arrested after police said that they suspected the cookies were laced with marijuana and field tests indicated LSD. It turns out the cookies were clean, but Phillips was jailed and charged.
Phillips was released after being jailed on on a charge of tampering with a consumer product. Police said that they smelled pot on the cookies but now believe it was pot sitting next to the cookies. They do not know why the test indicated drugs, but Lake Worth Police Chief Brett McGuire insisted “I probably wouldn’t do anything differently next time. None of my folks did anything that wasn’t by the book.” Really? How about not arresting him until you could show tampering?
