Police: Wilton Man Arrested in Brewster With Weed Stuck in His Teeth
A Connecticut man allegedly attempted to eat a marijuana cigarette to conceal it from officers, but unfortunately he forgot his dental floss.
In what seems like a scene out of Super Troopers, a Connecticut man attempted to eat a joint to conceal it from troopers -- it didn't work.
State Police from the Brewster barracks conducted a traffic stop on Main Street in the Village of Brewster. While interviewing the driver, troopers observed a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle.
The driver also had marijuana stuck in his teeth, and marijuana on his shirt. When the troopers asked the driver about their observations, the driver stated that he had eaten the marijuana cigarette to conceal it from law enforcement.
Troopers conducted the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, and discovered that the driver was impaired by drugs.
Alexander E. Orsher, 25, of Wilton, Connecticut was arrested and charged with Tampering with Physical Evidence, a felony, Operating a Motor Vehicle Impaired by Drugs, and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.
Orsher was processed and released on appearance tickets. He is due back in Brewster Court later this month.
