Florida Man Who Rammed Cruiser Possessed Multitude of Drugs

July 07, 2011  | 

Police discovered marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy in the vehicle of the 26-year-old man who rammed a St. Petersburg (Fla.) Police cruiser on Wednesday.

Marquis Ahomnd Green of St. Petersburg was also driving with a suspended license when he struck the cruiser and a second vehicle at 25th Avenue S.

The incident began about 8 p.m. as police stopped a Toyota Solara in the 4800 block of 25th Avenue S. Green's car suddenly rammed the driver's side of the cruiser with Officer Ronald Sparrow inside. When police caught up with Green after a pursuit, here's what they found inside his vehicle:

Police officers reported finding a pill of ecstasy in the Toyota's cup holder, crack cocaine scattered on the floor beneath the driver's seat, and a marijuana blunt also on the floor.
