Comments Off on Human tooth found lodged in Methamphetamine suspect’s hand at the University of Texas at Austin

AUSTIN — A first for campus police at the University of Texas at Austin — an officer found a human tooth embedded in the hand of a man arrested on drug charges.

The officer made the discovery at 3:37 a.m. on Friday after finding the man asleep at the wheel of a pickup that was parked, but running.

Inside the truck – next to the man – the officer saw a glass pipe with methamphetamine residue in it.

When the officer asked the man for his driver’s license, the officer said the man handed him a $20 bill and told him “he was used to being arrested.”

The officer also found a plastic bag containing .95 grams of methamphetamine in the truck.

But that wasn’t the most interesting thing the officer found.

While trying to book the man at the police station, they noticed he had a really bad infection in one of his fingers.

It turns out, he had a human tooth lodged in the finger.

The man told the officer it was from a fight he’d had the previous week.

He has been charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a dangerous drug.
