Snow in Florida

A sheriff’s deputy in Stuart, Fla., tried to pull over a speeding car, but the driver instead sped off, leading a chase. The officer managed to box the driver in, and he jumped out of his car. “I observed the left hand of the driver, later identified as Jarrod Breland, come out of the opening in a ball with white specks in the palm,” the officer wrote in his report. “The hand was so full it did not appear it could fully close.” The driver tossed the huge handful of white powder, and then another, and told the officer he didn’t see his flashing lights, or hear his siren. In addition, Breland, 30, had “no idea how [the] rainstorm of crack cocaine fell from [the] sky and landed on his car.” On the other hand, Breland did “admit that his license was suspended due to his last drug charge.” He was charged with eluding law enforcement, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, tampering with evidence, knowingly driving with a suspended license, possession of drug paraphernalia, and aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer — for splattering him with cocaine. (RC/Stuart News) ...But in his defense, he did offer to remove any cocaine from the officer’s uniform — with his nose.
