They say desperate times call for desperate measures, but this is further than I would go.

Jahrea Raheem Wallace was arrested after a traffic stop at nearly 3am, and tried to dispose of some narcotics on his person.

According to the affidavit, Wallace was caught on an in-vehicle-video (we looked, but we couldn't find it) "eating a bag of drugs he pulled from his butt."

When the sheriff's deputies confronted Wallace, he denied eating it before spitting it out a few seconds later.

The officer swabbed Wallace's mouth with a field kit, which tested positive for cocaine. The baggie was sent away to a lab for further testing.

Wallace was charged with Cocaine Possession, Providing a False Name, and Tampering with Physical Evidence, and was taken to the Pinellas County jail.
