VIDEO: Florida Woman Escapes Handcuffs, Grabs Weed Evidence, Eats It

 

A woman arrested in Central Florida escaped handcuffs and ate marijuana that police had confiscated from her car, police said. (Watch video here.)

Tavish Smith was originally pulled over in Cocoa on June 13 for suspicion of driving under the influence, according to WPLG – Miami. She had crashed her truck twice and driven the wrong way down U.S. 1.

Surveillance video in the back of the police car appeared to catch her escaping handcuffs and eating confiscated pot that police had found in her car. When asked by an officer if she was still in her handcuffs, Smith, who works for a Brevard County, Fla., judge, giggled and confessed to breaking free. 

"Bags of weed just don't go missing inside a police car," the officer told the Palm Beach Post

Police added that Smith denied eating pot, but she left crumbs throughout the car, and pot was on her hands and face, according to WPLG.

Now I'm not an expert in US laws, but I believe that young lady just went from a misdemeanor pot possession to a felony tampering with evidence charge, am I right? Smooth move, ex-lax.

Why on earth would they put the confiscated weed in the back seat WITH the perp?
