There's a time and place for everything and as always, the middle of the road is not the place, and when it comes to hard drugs - there isn't a time.

Police in Van Buren County, Michigan happened upon a car sitting in the middle of the road, parked, and conducted a traffic stop. The weird part was that it was at 12:15 pm - lunchtime.

Mind you, the car was parked in the middle of the road, and the guy in the driver's seat rolled his window down and asked officers why he was being pulled over. So obviously, they knew something was up.

Detectives told the man that he wasn't allowed to park in the middle of a county roadway.  According to the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office, the driver then responded by telling the officers that he had smoked some marijuana and thought he was being followed.

Then, he went a step further in his admission to the officers, and told them that he had some meth in the car.

Detectives interviewed the man and told him they would seek a warrant for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.
