I was going to change my own flat tire but then I decided to get high.... Iowa cop calls for help to change tire, police find pot & meth in vehicle

Police Officer Brandon Singleton arrested on drug charges - Police believe, based on amount, drugs were for personal use


An Iowa police officer, on duty and in his patrol car, was busted for drug possession after a late-night hit-and-run crash, authorities said.

Officer Brandon Singleton, 28, of the Des Moines police, had marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia inside his cruiser shortly after the accident, The Des Moines Register reported.

Singleton was involved in a 1 a.m. wreck Tuesday while driving his police car, smashing into another vehicle on the east side of Des Moines, the newspaper reported. But he didn’t contact police dispatchers until 5 hours later, when he called for help in changing a tire.

When cops arrived, Singleton’s car had two flat tires and body damage, drawing immediate attention from a police supervisor.

Another officer noticed the pot inside the car, and a subsequent search located the methamphetamine.

Police Sgt. Chris Scott said there was no indication that Singleton was under the influence when cops found him, but acknowledged the lengthy time lapse between the crash and his call.

Singleton, a five-year police veteran, was released without any bond on drug possession charges and place on paid leave.

The amount of drugs found inside the police car led officials to believe it was intended for personal consumption rather than distribution.

He realized what a shitload of trouble he was in and then decided to get high since he would probably get fired anyway?

Yeah, that's the ticket!

Officer Brandon Singleton voted for Obama, then asked him if he wanted to share what he found in his squad car.
