Black College Quarterback Arrested By Cops Who Mistake Bird Poop For Cocaine

Georgia Southern University junior starting quarterback Shai Werts was pulled over for allegedly speeding by police, who then falsely accused him of possessing cocaine July 31 in Clinton, South Carolina.

The cops claimed the bird feces on the hood of Werts’ 2016 Dodge Charger was cocaine, notes WJLC.

One of the police actually asked Wertz: “What’s the white stuff on the front of your hood, man? I swear to God it’s not [bird poo] because I just tested it, and that turned pink.

The police failed to mention how unreliable field drug test kits are and have resulted in numerous false arrests, noted New York Times Magazine in 2016.

Werts was suspended from the football team as he fought the bogus charges, which required him to wait for actual lab tests to proved the substance on the hood of his car was not cocaine.

Saluda County Prosecutor Al Eargle announced they were dropping the charges, while Georgia Southern University athletic director Tom Kleinlein said the team was “elated to get the news” and lifted the punishments against the innocent student.
