Arrival of Police Gives Pothead the Munchies

Note to Fort Lauderdale native Samuel Collins: When trying to destroy the evidence of your marijuana habit, best to take the pot out of the baggie before devouring it with your double cheeseburger. From the St. Pete Times:

When a Pasco sheriff's deputy approached the window of Samuel Collins' Honda Del Sol about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Collins had a baggy of marijuana in his mouth, the deputy reported.

But that was just the appetizer. To swallow the baggy, Collins, 28, grabbed a double cheeseburger with both hands and began "shoving the burger into his mouth," according to the report.

The deputy hauled Collins out of the Honda Del Sol and made him spit it out. Apparently, the 28-year-old was worried about a suspended license and a pending charge for marijuana possession.
