A driver in Ohio was pulled over recently, and tried to swallow a bag of marijuana to hide it. But he started choking, so the cop performed the Heimlich maneuver to save his life.
The man was cited for speeding and possession.
(Here’s the dashcam footage. Note for queasy stomachs: It DOES show the guy actually coughing up the baggie at the 1:18 mark.)
Don't try to swallow a bag of drugs prior to getting pulled over in an attempt to keep a trooper from finding them. Luckily, Tpr. Hoskin from our Ravenna Post was alert and able to assist the man who was choking on a bag of illegal marijuana. pic.twitter.com/LqgbOhOEsW— Ohio State Patrol (@OSHP) July 8, 2021
