Toney Ray Johnson is accused of trying to eat a bag of meth before being tased during a police chase in Marshall County this week, authorities said.
Johnson is currently jailed on charges of methamphetamine possession, tampering with evidence, resisting arrest, attempting to elude and possession of drug paraphernalia, records show. The 48-year-old is from Hazel Green in Madison County.
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy saw Johnson standing in the middle of White Elephant Road Monday afternoon and approached him, because he appeared to be having trouble starting the motorcycle. As the deputy approached, authorities said Johnson jumped on the motorcycle and sped away.
