A fleeing drug dealer buried himself in the mud after he was pulled over in a car full of cocaine and crystal meth.
Joe Hobson Jr, was pulled over on Interstate 20 near Conyers, Georgia, USA, on Thursday, on suspicion of drug trafficking – but fled shortly after the traffic stop.
Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office set up a perimeter, and two hours later, the convicted felon was found with his feet sticking out of a muddy drainage creek.
He had buried himself there in an attempt to evade capture, only to become stuck. He was charged with possession of 29 grams of cocaine, seven grams of methamphetamine, 12 ounces of weed and oxycodine, as well as liquid codeine.
Hobson was further charged with possession of two handguns – one of which was stolen – and had $4,000 cash on him at the time of his arrest.
