When A Suspect Allegedly Tries To Swallow A Bag Of Marijuana During A Traffic Stop, Things Take An Unexpected Turn.


“Do not try to swallow a bag of drugs prior to being pulled over in order to prevent a trooper from discovering them.”

This was the warning issued by the Ohio State Highway Patrol this week following an unexpected turn in a traffic stop for speeding.

A dashcam video posted online on Thursday showed state trooper Charles Hoskin performing the Heimlich maneuver on a man he had just pulled over for allegedly exceeding the speed limit.

Eventually, the man coughed up a bag of marijuana, according to police.

According to News 5 Cleveland, the man was cited for speeding, failing to wear a seat belt, and marijuana possession in connection with the July 3 incident in Portage County.
