Danville Man Swallows Cocaine Before Arrest

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Police say a central Kentucky man facing drug-related charges tried to chew and swallow the evidence.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1kl3vco ) reports that the Danville man, Royce T. Booker, allegedly tried to consume a substance that appeared to be cocaine when an officer approached him in a restaurant parking lot.

The incident happened when police were summoned to the restaurant Friday night to investigate an alleged drug deal.

A police officer used a Taser to subdue the 44-year-old Booker.

Booker was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
