To try and avoid getting arrested, an Illinois man starts eating cocaine.

Some people will try anything to stay out of jail.

This guy gave it a good effort but it didn't work.

According to,

"Lamelle T. Johnson tried to eat cocaine sitting next to a stolen handgun in a last-ditch effort to destroy evidence, authorities said."

Carpentersville Police had a search warrant for Johnson's house.

On arrival, they found 15 grams of cocaine and 25 hydrocodone pills. Officers also discovered a stolen Smith & Wesson 9 mm handgun and bullets.

The cops also noticed the man was chewing on something. It was the cocaine. To add insult to injury, along with all the other violations. He was charged with destroying evidence by eating the drugs. I'm sure he didn't feel very good after.
