Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Charles Hoskin pulled over the driver for going 94 mph in a 70 mph zone.
The 24-year-old tried to hide the pot by swallowing it and started choking. The Trooper performed the Heimlich maneuver. Dash camera video shows the bag dislodging.
“I’m sorry officer,” the man can be heard saying, admitting that he tried to swallow a bag of weed.
“It’s a minor misdemeanor,” Trooper Hoskin tells the man. “Do you want to die over a minor misdemeanor?”
The man was cited for speeding and failing to wear a seatbelt, as well as a misdemeanor for marijuana.
