A man pulled over by a police officer in Seattle, Washington this week, allegedly tried to snort cocaine right in front of the officer.
The 73-year-old man was initially stopped for not having on his headlights.
Officer Nic Abts-Olsen was intending to give the driver a warning due to his clean record, but when he returned to the vehicle after checking the man’s license and record, he spotted him scooping cocaine out of a glass vile.
After arresting the man, the officer questioned the driver over his actions.
“Are you kidding? You’re about to snort coke on the side of the road? Why…What would possess you to do that on a traffic stop, with a police officer right behind you? I just don’t understand.”
“I don’t understand either,” the man replied.
The man was arrested and booked for drug possession.
