Norman Park Police arrest pot-eating suspect


By Christian Jennings - bio | email 

Norman Park, GA (WALB) –  A Moultrie man led Norman Park police on a chase overnight, then fought police and swallowed drugs before being taken to jail.

The police chief says Julius Peterson was driving on West Weeks Avenue in Norman Park when they tried pulling him over for a burned-out tag light.

Peterson drove off instead, speeding and running through two stop signs before stopping. Police say they had to wrestle Peterson to the ground.

Then they saw him eat a bag of marijuana. Police also recovered what they called 'a machine gun' and a hand gun in his car, neither of which were registered to Peterson.

Right now he's in the Colquitt County jail.
