    21-Year Old Arrested for Pot Possession Escapes from Back of Police Car; Recaptured with Bloody Fingers

    Authorities say a man who escaped from the back of a police car in New Jersey tried to gnaw off his fingerprints.

    Police captured Keith Simmonds Jr. in Middletown on Monday. Authorities say the 21-year-old's fingertips were bloodied.

    Atlantic Highlands police arrested Simmonds and a passenger in his vehicle on drug charges after officers stopped them and said they found marijuana on Sunday night.

    Police say Simmonds managed to move his handcuffed arms to the front of his body, kick out the side window of the patrol car and escape while officers used a drug-detection dog to search his car.

    Simmonds is held in the Monmouth County jail on $135,000 bail. It's not known if he has a lawyer.

    SWIM wonders if that marajuana might not turn out to be a little wet...

    Seriously, never have met a stoner who would be motivated enough to chew off his fingers and kick through a police car window.
