A North Carolina man pulled over for having tinted windows dropped a bag of crack cocaine out of his undershorts and ate it in front of officers, police said.

According to the police report, 31-year-old Kenneth Dwayne Swann was walking "stiff-legged" when he got out of his car after officers pulled him over Thursday night. That's when police said a small bag of crack fell out of his undershorts, WTSP 10 reported.

Swann then "bent down, grabbed it and ate the crack," officers said.

According to the report, officers were unable to get the crack out of Swann's mouth before he swallowed it. They searched him and found an additional baggie in his shorts, this one containing three grams of crack.

The Salisbury Post reported police also recovered 57 oxycontin pills and $223 from his vehicle, which smelled strongly of marijuana and air fresheners.

According to the Post, Swann was given medication to "help retrieve the bag," as well as medication to prevent injury if it burst.

Swann was jailed under a $102,500 bond and charged with resisting, delaying or obstructing a public officer; two counts of felony trafficking opium derivatives; and maintaining a vehicle for keeping and storing prescription pills.
