A man who was pulled over for not using his turn signal wound up going to jail for allegedly trying to eat a handful of marijuana.

Gainesville Police said the man would have only been charged with a misdemeanor for possession of marijuana, but was charged with a felony for tampering with evidence when Officer Byron Carroll watched the man put marijuana in his mouth and start chewing.

Robert Michael Grady Jr., 27, was arrested at 2:36 a.m. Monday.

He was charged with habitually driving with a suspended license and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Grady was booked into the Alachua County Jail.
