When Monroe County sheriff’s deputies asked Dasha Fincher and David Morris Jr. to step out of their vehicle during a Dec. 31, 2016, traffic stop in Georgia, police said Fincher was “very nervous” and “started to shake.”
They were stopped because of a “very dark window tint” and consented to a search of their vehicle, according to an arrest report obtained by CBS affiliate WMAZ-TV. That’s when one of the deputies found a bag containing a “blue crystal like substance” on the passenger-side floorboard, where Fincher had been sitting.
She told Monroe County Deputies Cody Maples and Allen Henderson that the bag contained cotton candy, according to the report.
But a field test showed otherwise.
