US Police arrest college football player for bird poop, thinking its cocaine
A law enforcement officers accused a collage athlete of being in possession of cocaine, when in truth it was bird poop on the hood of a car.
South Carolina police officers pulled over a 21-year-old quarterback Shai Werts and questioned him about a white substance on his car. The policeman insisted that the substance tested positive for cocaine, despite Werts repeatedly telling him it’s just bird poop. The whole incident was caught on the officer’s bodycam.
"I swear to god that's bird poop," Werts said.
However, the policemen’s field test kit turned pink, indicating there is cocaine in the substance.
"I have no reason to lie about cocaine. I play football, so I don't do cocaine," the quarterback said.
Werts was arrested on misdemeanor cocaine possession and speeding charges and forced to spend the night in jail. He was also suspended from his football team activities during the investigation.
However, prosecutors announced that the cocaine possession charges were dismissed as the substance was indeed not cocaine.
"The forensic scientist determined that no controlled substance was detected,” the statement read.
“The Solicitor’s Office has begun the expungement process to have this charge removed from the system to ensure that this arrest and charge does not create a criminal history for Werts.”
