Deputies pull over driver with a serious case of the munchies

Posted at 6:46 PM, Nov 16, 2017

Washington County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over a driver Wednesday night that seemed to be pretty hungry. 

According to a post on Facebook, a deputy stopped a 31-year-old Milwaukee man who was swerving on I-41 near STH 28. The deputy that stopped the car initially found out the driver was eating a sandwich, which they thought caused the driver to drive erratically, not impairment. 

But there was a lingering odor of drugs, and after a quick search of the car, the deputy found 114 grams of marijuana in a pair of boots in the back seat. 

The driver was arrested for possession of marijuana and has been held on a probation violation.
