A Copeland man is accused of eating marijuana during a traffic stop and then attempting to flee the scene while speaking with deputies.

Clay Daniels, 27, was arrested Tuesday by Collier County sheriff's deputies at Southwest Boulevard and U.S. 41.

According to an arrest report, while on patrol, deputies observed Daniels — riding in a blue Chevy — failed to stop at a posted stop sign. A traffic stop was then conducted and deputies said they observed rolling papers on Daniels' lap and watched him eat an unknown item.

Deputies said they ordered Daniels to spit out what he was eating but he refused and grabbed a piece of foil and began eating another item from inside of it. Daniels then tried to open the door and flee the scene but deputies grabbed him but he continued to resist so deputies then struck Daniels in the face once with a fist, according to reports.

Daniels eventually complied with deputies and no longer tried to escape, deputies said.

While this was taking place, Daniels told the driver of the vehicle not to worry because he had been through this a million times, according to reports.

Deputies said a search of the car revealed nearly 8 grams of marijuana and a .380-round of ammunition.

Daniels, who is listed as a habitual offender, is facing charges of possessing firearm ammo as a felon, tampering with evidence, possessing less than 20 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia possession, and resisting law enforcement without violence.

Another Vinny campaign promise; “I will stop deputies from face punching unless it’s first been cleared with me personally.” Example: “Hey Boss Hog, Deputy Dawg here, gotta guy who’s a wise acre and needs a smack.” Vinny: “Does he have money for a ride home in one of my taxis?” Deputy: “No” Vinny: “Okay, punch the little one out then take him to Vinny’s house of horrors.”

So, long story short; if police find a bullet in the owner’s car, and his irate passenger is a convicted felon, the passenger will automatically face charges of possessing firearm ammo as a felon?

Not to defend this tin foil/pot eating diet passenger, but what if the bullet belongs to the owner?

Just an observation, any attorney should be able to dismiss that charge.

Hey Max_ what is his tat?

Good eye Max. I didn't notice it. Guess you learned to notice such things like that in prison.

Glad they got this moron off the streets. A convicted felon running a stop sign because he's trying to roll a doobie while driving, endangering other drivers. Idiots like him will never learn. This guy deserves to be locked up. How s----- can you be?
