MIDDLETOWN — A Middletown man was chewing on a piece of crack cocaine while he was being booked into the Middletown Jail on another man's outstanding warrants, according to police.
Rashad Darrell McCoy, 28, of 1818 Minnesota St., twice gave police a wrong name. He was arrested during a routine traffic stop at Manchester Avenue and Clark Street in which officers also noticed an odor of marijuana in the car in which he was riding. Under his seat, police found a marijuana cigar, according to Middletown police reports.
During his arrest, McCoy tried to flee police custody, and in a scuffle, an officer's eyeglasses came off and were damaged, according to reports.
At the jail, police later learned McCoy's real name when they noticed a "Rashad" tattoo across his back. Officers also noticed McCoy was chewing something, which McCoy said was gum. Officers asked him to spit out what later was identified as 0.4 gram of crack cocaine, according to police reports.
McCoy was charged with conveying drugs into a detention facility, resisting arrest, obstructing official business, criminal damaging, drug abuse crack cocaine and for marijuana possession. He also had an outstanding warrant from the Butler County Sheriff's Office for failure to pay child support, according to reports.
McCoy remains in Middletown Jail in lieu of a $17,500 bond. He is scheduled to appear at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 29 in Middletown Municipal Court.
