Fleeing Florida man tosses cocaine out sunroof and onto hood of pursuing police car
A Florida man tossed a bag of cocaine out a sunroof, authorities said, but it landed on the hood of a trailing police car.
Police were pursuing the car about 2 a.m. Wednesday in Kissimmee after an officer said the vehicle nearly slammed into his patrol car, reported The Smoking Gun.
The officer shined a spotlight on the gold Acura, and he said the driver opened the sunroof and the passenger tossed out something.
The officer said a clear plastic bag then landed on his hood, so he slowed down.
The Acura eventually stopped at a 7-Eleven parking lot, and the officer questioned the men.
Police said the passenger, 30-year-old Luis Vazquez, denied tossing the drugs, but 38-year-old Jose Vales said his friend had thrown out the baggie.
Both men were arrested on a variety of drug charges, and Vazquez was also charged with tampering with evidence.
