Man who ate pot gets probation

A man who was caught dining on marijuana has been granted probation for allegedly trying to eat the evidence.
The man, Danny Womack, 48, was issued an 11-month, 29-day probationary sentence by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke on charges of simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The charge of destruction of evidence was dropped as a result of his plea agreement.
Womack was pulled over by McMinnville Police Sgt. Ben Cantrell for a window tint violation. As the officer was walking to the car, he got a whiff of something.
“I detected the odor of raw marijuana and observed Mr. Womack to have green marijuana residue on and about his mouth from the marijuana he had just consumed,” the sergeant recalled.
Womack was placed under arrest at which time Cantrell said he found a plastic container on the suspect’s person which contained a small amount of marijuana. A glass pipe was also found concealed in his waistband.
Adding to his issues was a license check that revealed he was driving on a revoked license which had been pulled back in 2011 in White County for failure to comply with the financial responsibility law.
