Police Arrest Woman For Meth, Drug Test Comes Back And They're Immediately Embarrassed

When a young woman from Commerce was stopped in Gainesville, Georgia, police officers were suspicious of her spoon that she said was stained with SpaghettiOs sauce.
That day, she had no idea that her life was going to change dramatically.
Ashley Gabrielle Huff was stopped by police for a tag light violation. The police report indicates Ashley gave the officer permission to search her 1994 Ford Explorer and a bag with her name on it.
The officer said in his report that Ashley was acting "nervous" and had sores on her body. Inside her bag was the spoon with a "clear crystal-like substance."
The officer indicated his suspicion.
"I found it strange that she would eat SpaghettiOs with a metal spoon while riding in a vehicle, and then put the spoon back in a bag ... I tested the spoon with a field test kit, and the crystal-like substance on the spoon showed a positive indication for methamphetamine."
They also found a glass smoking apparatus in her bag. The police arrested 23-year-old Ashley Gabrielle Huff. She was charged with possessing crystal meth and they promptly did a drug test. When the results came back, they realized they'd made a huge mistake. Ashley was angry then thankful.
"It was so stressful. Nobody believed me. I said I had SpaghettiOs on my spoon. Nobody believed that. Everybody thought it was hilarious, but that was exactly what it was."
Ashley explained that she had been riding around in a car with friends and she threw the SpaghettiOs can in the trash. Because she was eating straight out of the can, she tossed the spoon in her bag.
Eventually, the methamphetamine possession charge was dismissed by the Hall County district attorney's office. The official crime lab report showed there were no controlled substances on her spoon that had been submitted for testing. Ashley was thrilled to be out from behind bars.
"I'm just happy to be free again."
Ashley initially was ordered to seek drug counseling as part of her court arraignment. Unfortunately, she couldn't make it to all of the appointments, so she was arrested again, even though she knew in her heart the spoon was stained with SpaghettiOs.
