Man tosses bag of marijuana into security tray
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A man going through a courthouse metal detector emptied his pockets, tossing a small bag of marijuana into the security tray.
When Clyde Lamar Pace II realized what he had done, he tried to flee. But he ran the wrong way from Polk County deputies into a locked revolving door.
"He threw in a baggie of marijuana without realizing it, and the person working the security post said, 'Hey, what is this?"' said Chief Deputy Bill Vaughn. "He kind of gave that old I've-been-caught look, and the chase was on."
Pace, 18, first tried to retrace his steps, then ran through the building before he was stopped by deputies at the locked door.
Pace was arrested for drug possession and resisting arrest. The arrest caused him to miss a scheduled hearing on drug and driving charges filed after a traffic stop last month.
