Art Taylor was having a bad day. While driving in Framington, Mass., the 18-year-old was about to be pulled over for turning without using his signal, which sucks because the illegal turn would be the least of his problems. As police walked up to the car, Taylor went into panic mode. After refusing to give police his license or registration, Taylor reached for the center console and grabbed a small bag of white powder in it. And that’s where this story takes an illegal turn for the worst.
According to the Metro West Daily News, Taylor went to put the bag in his mouth — right in front of the police.
“He made a quick movement to the center console, and there was small baggie with a white powder in it,” police spokesman Lt. Ron Brandolini said. “He immediately made a movement to put it in his mouth.”
