Things Go Better With Coke: Driver Arrested For Allegedly Snorting Cocaine During A Traffic Stop

By Darren Smith, Weekend Contributor

180px-CocaineHydrochloridePowderSeattle 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.”
“No!”
“Really?”
“Really.”
“What was it then”
“Nothing.”
“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.

  1. Did he actually do it? And where are the lab tests? Grasping……? Maybe the officer was being punked. Slink away. i know. But we should always probe alternatives.

    New! Highlight lyrics to add Meanings, Special Memories, and Misheard Lyrics…

    Driving that train, high on cocaine,
    Casey Jones you better watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    This old engine makes it on time
    Leaves Central Station ’bout a quarter to nine
    Hits River Junction at seventeen two
    At a quarter to ten you know it’s travelin’ again

    Driving that train, high on cocaine
    Casey Jones you better, watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    Trouble ahead, Lady in red
    Take my advice you’d be better off dead
    Switchman’s sleeping, train hundred and two is
    On the wrong track and headed for you

    Driving that train, high on cocaine
    Casey Jones you better watch your speed
    Trouble ahead trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    Drive your train, whoo
    Trouble with you is the trouble with me
    Got two good eyes but you still don’t see
    Come round the bend, you know it’s the end
    The fireman screams and the engine just gleams

    Driving that train, high on cocaine
    Casey Jones you better, watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    Driving that train, high on cocaine
    Casey Jones you better, watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    Driving that train, high on cocaine
    Casey Jones you better, watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    Driving that train, high on cocaine
    Casey Jones you better, watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, you know, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind

    And you know that notion just cross my mind

  3. More evidence that there is no cure for stupid. I’d bet Tom Blanton above dead right. randyjet too. Urp!

  4. At his age he should avoid Coke and go for diet Pepsi. The older generation has way too much diabetes.

  5. I suspect the guy was attempting to destroy the evidence and he didn’t want to just sprinkle the blow on the street. I would have tried to snort it all up before pulling over in the first place.

  6. LOL! Was this guy in the Back to the Future car, driving right out of 1981? Was he wearing a beeper?

  7. “I got it for Thanksgiving as a gift from an anonymous donor and it had a note which said I had to smell it with the straw. So it sat around on the front seat until today and when you pulled me over I had nothing to do so I followed directions. Then when you told me to get out of the car I followed directions. I always follow directions. I am 73 and do not get erections.”

  8. I guess his defence will be that it’s probably safer to snort in a stationary vehicle?
