A 73-year-old man, who was about to get off with a warning, decided to go full scarface and do a little blow while a Seattle police officer was running his license on a moving violation.
According to the department’s crime blotter, Officer Nic Abts-Olsen was on patrol in the Colman neighborhood around 8:30 PM on Dec. 1 when a man in a silver Toyota drove past him with his headlights off. After pulling the Toyota over, Abts-Olsen ran the driver’s history and, seeing he had a spotless record, was going to give him a warning and let him go.
However, when going back to the window to give the driver his license back, he observed him snort a white powdery substance from a small glass vial.
“Are you kidding?,” Officer Abts-Olsen asked the man, who quickly tried to brush away the white powder. “You’re about to start coke on the side of the road?”
The man initially denied having any cocaine, though he admitted he had “vitamins” in his possession and later came clean, admitting that doing a pinch of pure Colombian while pulled over was probably not the best idea.
