MAN DIES AFTER EATING MARIJUANA
A 20-year-old Winton Terrace man who had been stopped for a traffic violation died Thursday, apparently after ingesting drugs, police said.
Police spokesman Lt. Kurt Byrd said an officer pulled the man over on Kings Run Drive in Winton Hills for a traffic violation about 4:30 p.m.
A computer check revealed that the man, whose identity was not being released this morning, was wanted on misdemeanor warrants, Byrd said.
While the man was in the back seat of the officer's cruiser, he began to look distressed and the officer asked the man if he was OK, police said. The suspect told the officer he had swallowed marijuana.
The man began looking increasingly ill and police called for a fire rescue unit.
The man was taken to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead Thursday evening.
The Hamilton County Coroner's Office is investigating to determine what substances the man might have ingested, Byrd said.
