SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Sheboygan prosecutors have charged a young woman with trying to eat marijuana as police pulled over the car in which she was riding.
Eighteen-year-old Jamie L. Salonen was charged Friday with misdemeanor marijuana possession and felony bail jumping.
The criminal complaint says a trooper stopped her car after seeing the occupants weren’t wearing seatbelts. It says the trooper saw Salonen move around suspiciously.
Prosecutors say the trooper found her with green material around her mouth and lips, and marijuana strewn about her side of the car.
The complaint says she was surprised she was being arrested, saying, “I only ate some weed, officer.”
A number listed for Salonen was disconnected. Online court records didn’t list a defense attorney Saturday.
