Florida Woman Arrested for Pot Possession; She Eats the Pot in Patrol Car

This is vintage Florida news right here: a woman was arrested this week after crashing her car twice and got busted for DUI and drug possession. But what makes this a uniquely Florida story is that when she grabbed the bag with the pot in it and ate it… in the patrol car.

Tavish Smith, according to Florida Highway Patrol, crashed her truck into a car earlier this month, and then drove on, ending up in a ditch after she crashed into it. A trooper who came over smelled alcohol on her breath and confiscated a plastic bag with marijuana in it before throwing her in the car.

And then, as she was in the car, Smith wiggled out of the handcuffs, took the plastic bag from where the trooper had left it, and proceeded to eat its contents. As a result, tampering with evidence was added to her list of charges.
