Police charge man with possession of controlled substance

In the heat of the moment, people commonly make choices that they later realize were probably not the best. For some, those poor decisions may not lead to much negative outcome, but for others, it could result in criminal charges for possession of controlled substance or other allegations. As a result, those individuals may need legal help.

One man in Florida was recently taken into custody after attempting to evade police. Reports stated that officers attempted to stop the vehicle that the man was driving, due to speeding. However, when the man stopped the vehicle, he got out and began to run from police. Apparently, in further attempts to evade, the man tried swimming away in a canal. The man was impeded by algae, and, after swallowing some, he called to the officers for help.

Police got the man out of the canal and took him into custody. They also reportedly used a water hose and rinsed the algae off the man before taking him to the hospital for a precautionary evaluation. Police apparently searched the man's vehicle and found vials of THC oil, and he is now facing charges for possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest.

If convicted for possession of controlled substance or the other allegation brought against him, the man could face an uncertain future. However, it is not guaranteed that a conviction will take place. He has the chance to create and present a meaningful defense to the Florida court, if he wishes to do so, to help him maintain his innocence.
