Deputies arrested a man Friday who is accused of hiding crack cocaine in his buttocks.
Charles Everette Robinson, 30, of the 3300 block of Ellington Court, Fort Myers, was charged with battery on a nurse, trafficking cocaine, introduction of contraband into a detention facility and two felony counts of driving while license is suspended/habitual offender. Bond was set on all but one of the driving counts which had bond denied. He remained Monday in Lee County Jail.
According to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office reports:
While deputies searched Robinson after his arrest, they believed he was “possibly holding something in his rectum area.”
He was taken to jail where he began breathing fast and complained of chest pain. The jail nurse said because of his high heart rate, he needed to be taken to the hospital.
X-rays were taken and the doctor told Robinson to disrobe for a more thorough exam.
Robinson became aggressive and finally emergency room staff held him on his stomach. The doctor found a golf ball-sized bag with suspected crack cocaine in it during the inspection.
“Robinson immediately made a miraculous recovery and stated to (the) deputy… ‘don’t be mad at me. I was just trying to provide for my family.’”
The doctor immediately cleared him and he was taken back to jail.
