Eating Evidence, Fighting Over Cigarettes and Pizza Thievery: Weird Crime News

Here's what police officers around Northeast Georgia were up against recently.

Eating the evidence 

A man pulled over for suspicion of DUI by a Loganville Police Department officer was seen chewing on a green leafy substance. Wonder what that was? The suspect refused to open his mouth and continually turned away from the officer's eyes, but he still got pinched for drug possession.
