Florida woman eats bag of pot to hide from cops during traffic stop

Posted: Updated:
A Central Florida woman is accused of getting rid of drug evidence, by eating it.

Tavish Smith was arrested in Orlando and put in the backseat of a cruiser on Friday. Police said they were called after she crashed her truck while driving the wrong way on a central Florida highway.

After she was put in the backseat, Smith was able to wiggle out of her handcuffs and reach over and grab a plastic bag filled with marijuana officers say they found inside her car.

That's when they say she decided to eat it. She chews and nibbles and munches on it, eating the entire thing.

When asked about it, she denied swallowing the pot. To which the officers told her "Bags of weed just don't go missing inside a police car."

She was arrested and her misdemeanor hit-and-run DUI & drug possession charges just got bumped up to felony charges of destroying evidence.

Police say she denied eating the drug, but was still arrested.

    “Seeing a broken violin is nothing new to me,” Kyle Dillingham said turning to the shelf of those violins waiting for repair. “They’re all over the place, this is a pretty bad break,” he said pulling out a violin with gaping hole in its shell.  Sometimes a ‘bad break’ is just that for the instrument. Those violins where the repair cost exceeds the replacement value are deemed ‘broken beyond repair.’
