Texas cops accused of confiscating, eating pot brownies

Three Houston officers face accusations of getting high on duty

By PoliceOne Staff

HOUSTON, Texas — Three officers face accusations of getting high on duty from eating pot brownies they found during an arrest.

A police report says officers found marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms, weapons, and cash when they arrested Nicholas Hill in May, according to NBC San Diego. Hill says the officers took baked goods containing marijuana - allegedly eating them on the spot - and his defense lawyer said that transcripts from in-car computers provide evidence.

Part of that transcript reads as follows:

Officer 1: "So HIGH… Good munchies."

Officer 2: "Everything should be open when we get done."

Officer 1: "Two hours, max."

Officer 2: "Probably, but this will take the whole shift."

Currently, the charges still stand, and the officers could face a felony charge for destruction of evidence and patrolling under the influence.

Hill was charged with two felonies in the incident - one for possession of marijuana and one for the mushrooms.
