Think twice the next time you want to gorge on SpaghettiOs in the privacy of your own car. Georgia resident Ashley Gabrielle Huff, 23, just got out of jail after spending over a month there because cops confused some leftover SpaghettiOs on her car spoon (we all have them) for meth.
The Gainesville Times reports that Huff was arrested on July 2 and charged with possession of methamphetamine, but she maintained the entire time that the residue on her spoon came from a snack, not drugs. She attempted to go through drug court, but was jailed on August 2 after missing a bond payment. She was finally released from jail last Thursday after a crime lab analysis determined, once and for all, that the "meth" was just some dried spaghetti sauce.
Hall County assistant public defender Chris van Rossem told the Times, "From what I understand, she was a passenger in a car and had a spoon on her, near her, and I guess the officer, for whatever reason, thought there was some residue. She's maintained all along that there's no way in hell that's any sort of drug residue or anything like that."
According to the Hall County justice system, Huff had never faced drug charges before this incident.
