Man arrested after sprinkling cocaine on officer’s head, police say

A Tennessee man was arrested Monday after allegedly sprinkling cocaine over an officer’s head, police said.

Nashville police officers saw Antonio Freeman roll what appeared to be marijuana in a blunt, FOX17 Nashville reported, citing an arrest affidavit. When an officer approached Freeman, police said he tried to hide the blunt he was rolling.

Freeman, 20, put the rolling papers and marijuana in his pocket and, in front of three officers, took out a bag of cocaine and began to sprinkle the power on Officer Ryan Caulfield’s head, The Tennessean reported.

Freeman was arrested and police seized 2.5 grams of cocaine that he allegedly tried to destroy, according to FOX17 Nashville. Police said they also discovered a scale and a pill bottle with marijuana residue behind the man’s scrotum, according to the station.

He was arrested on felony drug and tampering charges and remained in Metro Nashville Police custody on $5,000 bond Tuesday.
