Jan. 4, 2013: Pot suspect eats the evidence

Police in suburban Milwaukee say a man pulled over with marijuana in his car apparently tried to hide the evidence by eating the pot.

The 26 year old Germantown man was pulled over Dec. 30 because his vehicle had expired license plates. Officers with the Village of Jackson police say they smelled marijuana smoke inside the vehicle, spotting traces of the drug on the floor and console.

The man and his passenger denied using the drug, but their story didn't hold up. An officer reports the suspect's mouth was covered with marijuana flakes and his tongue was coated green.

He was arrested for driving under the influence and carrying a concealed weapon because a club found in his car was a violation of his court-ordered probation.
