Man arrested for having lettuce in teeth
Police arrest suspect, accused of gulping down marijuana.
A Lake Mary police officer thought he smelled marijuana coming from the car in which John Anthony Grant was riding.
When he asked Grant to open his mouth, he found marijuana stuck in the suspect’s teeth, according to a police report.
Grant, 28, of Deltona, was hauled to the Seminole County Jail Saturday morning, accused of possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence. He was released later that day on $1,050 bond.
Grant says he’s innocent.
“I had nothing on me,” he said Monday.
The green stuff in his mouth, he said, might have been lettuce. He’d just eaten two double cheeseburgers from Checkers, he said.
Police took a photo of his mouth, according to the police report.
They also gathered up crumbs from Grant’s shirt, and it tested positive for marijuana, according to the police report.
