Florida woman allegedly slips out of handcuffs, eats marijuana

| Jul 3, 2014 | Drug Charges |

Offenses in Florida involving drugs are taken very seriously. They can leave a permanent mark on your record and negatively affect your reputation at work and in the community. Beyond this, drug charges can make it difficult to get a job in the future and could lead to serious criminal sanctions.

While societal views and some state’s law enforcement policies regarding marijuana have softened in recent years, marijuana possession remains a drug offense that a person can have serious charges brought against them in relation to here in Florida.

A Brevard woman has recently landed in a situation of facing drug charges over alleged marijuana possession.

Investigators claim that she was driving under the influence and crashed her vehicle twice. When the Florida Highway Patrol arrived on the scene of the second crash, a trooper reported that a smell of alcohol was coming from the woman. The woman refused to take a Breathalyzer test and was arrested at the scene. She was placed in handcuffs.

Police allegedly found marijuana in the woman’s truck. She was put in the back of the patrol car and the bag of alleged marijuana was placed in the patrol car’s center console. She then asked the officer to retrieve a pair of flip flops that were still in her truck. The officer obliged, but while he was absent, the woman allegedly managed to get a hand free of the handcuffs, grab the bag and eat a significant portion of the marijuana.

The officer then noticed that the woman had gotten free of the handcuffs and reportedly discovered marijuana crumbs on the woman’s hands and in the back seat area of the patrol car. The woman is facing several charges, including: possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence, resisting an officer without violence and driving under the influence.

If you find yourself facing drug possession charges in Florida, an attorney’s advice can be invaluable. He or she may be able to help you fight the charges.
