Cops: Man throws biscuits to distract dog

The Associated Press

WABASH, Ind.- A driver stopped for speeding tried to distract a drug-sniffing dog by throwing dog biscuits from his car, state police said.

Troopers stopped Jong H. Kim, 23, of Overland Park, Kan., along U.S. 24 on Wednesday, but reported that they called for a Wabash County Sheriff's Department dog after he appeared to be very nervous and at one point vomited.

As the dog walked around the car, Kim threw dog biscuits and debris out the window toward the dog in an apparent attempt to distract it, police said. The dog nonetheless indicated the possible presence of illegal drugs in the car.

Kim refused to leave the car and had to be pulled out by officers, police said.

Troopers reported finding about 75 grams of marijuana hidden in the car. Kim was being held Friday in the Wabash County Jail on charges of marijuana possession, resisting law enforcement and drunken driving.
