Cops: Woman chews, eats crack pipe

Police in Florida say a woman tried to get rid of a glass crack pipe by chewing and eating it.  She was bleeding from her mouth when she was arrested.

A published police report on the incident shows that the 52-year-old woman was being questioned by police in regards to some other incident and was told to look for a car key in her purse.  The police officer saw the pipe.

As the officer tried to put her into custody he says she grabbed the pipe and he "observed her chewing, and attempting to swallow" the pipe.  When she eventually opened her mouth the pipe was gone but she had a cut on the roof of her mouth and was bleeding.  Along with drug charges, the woman faced tampering with evidence charges.
