Seattle Police reportedly stopped a seventy-three-year-old man for driving without his headlamps on during hours of darkness. It could have been just a warning for the driver but after the officer returned from checking the driver’s status and vehicle registration he found something truly unexpected–the driver snorting cocaine.
On December first of 2015 around 8:30 PM Seattle’s traffic stop turned into something rather interesting, as recorded on a dash-camera. When the officer returned to the driver’s vehicle, after having completed a WACIC and DOL check on the driver, he reportedly planned to give only a warning for the headlight violation but instead the driver allegedly decided the time was right for few snorts of blow.
After knocking on the window the SPD officer startled the driver, causing him to spill the cocaine. He then asked the driver what was in his left hand, to which the driver replied “nothing”. The conversation deteriorated for the newly crowned “suspect.”
“Really. Are you kidding. You’re about to snort coke on the side of the road.”
“What was it then”
“I watched you do it.”
“It was nothing.”
That “nothing” resulted in the suspect’s booking into the county jail for felony possession of a controlled substance.
I think some people just want to be arrested.
