Florida Man Eats Bag of Cocaine in Front of Cops

A Florida man sat in his car, pulled out a bag of cocaine, ripped it open like a bag of Tostitos, and began eating the coke. All in full view of police officers.

Gainesville police say they spotted the man sitting in the passenger seat of a car parked in front of a convenience store Wednesday night.

When they approached the man and began questioning him, he allegedly ripped open the bag of yeyo with his teeth and went to town on it.

According to cops, the man, Maurice McQueen, 20, had been sitting in the car at the Kangaroo Express parking lot located on SW 20th Avenue, for several hours, prompting someone to call them.

The responding officers approached the car McQueen was sitting in and noticed he had a hand under the seat. He then moved his hand toward his back.

Police then ordered McQueen to show his hands and unlock the car.

McQueen ignored those orders.

Instead, he whipped out a blue bag of what the report says was cocaine, bit into it, ripped it open with his teeth, and stuffed his face into it like a horse devouring a feedbag.

According to the arrest report, McQueen then pulled out a cup of water and began drinking it, washing down the coke.

So it would appear this was more of an attempt to hide drugs than a situation where he thought cocaine was delicious.

McQueen finally came out of car but pulled a Bieber when he refused to allow police to cuff him. He was eventually taken down to the ground and handcuffed.

Cops were able to get the bag, which still had the white substance, which, shockingly, eventually tested positive for cocaine.

McQueen was arrested on charges of destroying physical evidence, possession of cocaine, and resisting an officer without violence. He was being held in lieu of $40,000 bond.
