Man stopped driving 5 mph on Nashville road while allegedly high on synthetic marijuana
NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A man believed to be under the influence of synthetic marijuana was found driving 5 mph on Long Hollow Pike early Friday morning.
According to arrest records for Chidebelu Chukwuuemeka, police followed the 46-year-old because he was driving so slowly and came to an abrupt stop in the middle of his lane four times. The arresting officer says he also observed the car turn onto Conference Drive at which time Chukwuuemeka drove "completely over the curb onto the sidewalk."
The officer says after pulling Chukwuuemeka over, he observed him flailing around making extreme erratic movements with his arms and throwing an open bottle of water into the floorboard for no apparent reason.
The officer says he observed a green leafy substance all over Chukwuuemeka's lap and he was confused about where he was and what was happening.
Police found two bags of synthetic marijuana (K2) in the car and a glass pipe with K2 residue. A further check found Chukwuuemeka was driving on a suspended Indiana driver's license.
Chukwuuemeka was arrested and charged with DUI, drug paraphernalia possession, driving on a suspended license and possession of synthetic cannabinoids.
