Georgia woman mistakenly jailed for more than a month after cops confused SpaghettiOs for meth
NY Daily News, September 30, 2014
A Georgia woman was mistakenly jailed for one month after cops confused her SpaghettiOs for meth.
Ashley Gabrielle Huff was first detained on July 2 after officers in Gainesville found a spoon with a dried substance baked onto it inside her car during a routine traffic stop.
The 23-year-old, from Commerce, claimed it was residue from the canned pasta that she liked to eat in the vehicle.
Police, however, believed it to be methamphetamine.
Huff, who had no criminal history, was sent to Hall County Jail for two days so cops could conduct crime lab tests on the mysterious texture.
