Former MLB player Elijah Dukes gets arrested in Florida, tried to eat bag of weed

Just when you thought that you had heard it all in former athlete arrests, former Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Elijah Dukes recently got pulled over for a traffic violation in Florida.

Dukes who had previously been arrested five times by police on other charges had a bag of weed in the car and decided the best way to hide was to eat it:
Former Rays outfielder Elijah Dukes was arrested early Thursday after he tried to eat a plastic bag of marijuana and had marijuana blunt tucked behind his ear, police said … He faces charges of tampering with physical evidence, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a cancelled, suspended or revoked license. He was also being held on two Hillsborough County warrants for driving with a suspended knowledge and operating with a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
