Man Allegedly Tries to Eat the Evidence

Roland

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — A Columbus man who apparently tried to eat the evidence still ends up in jail.

Rickey Roland, 27, was stopped at a police roadblock on Airline Road shortly after 1 Sunday afternoon. He allegedly tried to eat some or all of the more than an ounce of marijuana he had in the car and struggled with officers before being subdued and treated by ambulance personnel.

He later was charged with felony possession of marijuana, resisting arrest and several misdemeanors.
