Florida News: Man Busted For Possession After Hiding Drugs In Stomach Fat
In case you missed Nikolai's story from this morning...
450 pound Christopher Mitchell, known appropriately on the streets as Fat Boy, was pulled over in Osteen, FL by authorities for not wearing a seat belt. Mitchell informed Volusia County police that he was unable to fasten a seat belt due to his wide girth. The officer noticed that both the driver and the passenger seemed nervous and fidgety, so back up was called. Back up brought in the K-9 unit to further investigate. Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that he was indeed carrying narcotics...but it's where Fat Boy was hiding the drugs that's made this a story.
Mitchell was allegedly hiding cocaine and 23 grams of marijuana under rolls of his stomach fat. Ughh. Deputies say he was also carrying seven thousand dollars in cash and a handgun...though fortunately for all involved, Mitchell was not carrying the gun in another fat fold. Both men were arrested and are being held at Volusia County jail.
