That’s one way to pass the coke.
A former waitress in Tennessee is facing charges after police say she mistakenly dropped a small bag of cocaine into a drink she served to an off-duty cop, according to local police.
Jekievea Monchell Yearby, of Chattanooga, was working at a Steak & Shake restaurant late Thursday in Hixson, Tenn., when officers responded to a report of an assault at the restaurant, according to a statement by the Kirbyville Police Department.
An off-duty Chattanooga cop then told responding officers that he found a small baggie of cocaine in his drink. A review of surveillance footage taken inside the restaurant showed Yearby dropping the package into Officer Ricky Wolfe’s drink as she took his order.
Yearby, according to a police affidavit, admitted that the cocaine belonged to her, but claimed the drugs accidentally fell into the officer’s drink from her waitress book.
Yearby told police she had another baggie of cocaine in her bra. Officers at the Hamilton County Jail later found that package and a small black straw that tested positive for cocaine residue.
Yearby, who was fired after the incident, was charged with assault, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
