Drunk driving is down by leaps and bounds after decades of vgery aggressive enforcement but, apparently, drug-driving arrests are climbing at least in the state or Georgia.
A new-ish training program for officers has came about giving them “drug recognition” training and the state has more than 250 people who qualify for this. But, it seems, that many drivers are getting arrested for driving stone despite the fact that those individuals have came back negative on testing.
Katelyn Ebner is one of those individuals. She left work and started heading home when she was pulled over… She crossed the center line of the road and that’s what prompted law enforcement to stop her.
“I didn’t realize that you could get arrested for something that you didn’t do,” Ebner told Keefe. “That never crossed my mind until it happened to me.”
Cobb County Police Officer T.T. Carroll: “You said you haven’t had anything to drink tonight?”
Katelyn Ebner: “Not tonight, no.”
Officer Carroll: “Not tonight, okay. One of the things we do is we ask people to blow through this thing, okay.”
Officer Carroll: “Blow real hard, blow ’til I ask you to stop — keep going, keep going — you can stop. Okay.”
Officer Carroll: “I’m going to ask you a question, okay? When was the last time you smoked marijuana?”
Katelyn Ebner: “Oh, I don’t do that. I can give you a drug test right now.”
Officer Carroll: “You don’t smoke marijuana?”
Katelyn Ebner: “I do not, no.”
Officer Carroll: “Okay. Well, you’re showing me indicators that you have been smoking marijuana, okay?”
And here’s the raw footage from Katelyn’s arrest:
