Police Find Meth Pipe in Florida Official's Rectum

A Miami city official driving around high on meth with a tin full of drugs in his car had another surprise for the arresting officers.

Hialeah city purchaser Carlos Lopez was arrested in December after Fort Lauderdale police noticed him driving slowly and speaking to a group of men who ran away when they saw the patrol car. When police pulled him over, the officers found him to be "visually shaken and sweating...flushed from an apparent rise in body temperature and pupils were dilated."

Using a canine unit, they found a small container of meth in the car, and according to police reports, later found a small glass meth pipe in Lopez's rectum.

According to the Miami Herald, amazingly Lopez was not fired, but instead transferred to a leadership post in Public Works.
