When transporting drugs in your vehicle, remember to always signal. Otherwise you might end up like 18-year-old Art Taylor who, upon being pulled over for not signaling, freaked out and swallowed a bag of cocaine. His mugshot says it all.
According to Framingham, Mass. police, they struggled with the teenager to stop him from swallowing a bag of white powder after they stopped him for a minor traffic offense.
"He made a quick movement to the center console, and there was small baggie with a white powder in it," said Police Spokesperson Ron Brandolini. "He immediately made a movement to put it in his mouth."
The officers were able to handcuff Talyor and remove him from the car, but not before swallowing what's believed to be cocaine. The suspected criminal was charged with assault and battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct, and not using a turn signal. It doesn't appear as if drug charges were brought upon him, which we guess makes his gambit kind of successful.
