Y’all hashtag your creedos like you’d for your high: #dablife, #710life, #420life. But how many of us really stay true to our stoner selves in life’s most extreme moments? Not many are truly tested, even fewer survive such a test with a passing grade.

But one Michigan man proved recently that his veins truly do run amber with concentrate. The wonderfully named Stravansky Nycassio Hinds was pulled over earlier this month when Michigan State Police noticed his improper license plate, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The unusual thing about the incident, the reason that it’s being featured in this article, is that Hinds did not choose to pull over when the cops first signaled him to. But he didn’t decide to flee either. Instead, he chose the third option that few had ever considered before: he was just going to drive long enough to finish his joint and then give himself up.

After the state police lit up their flashers, Hinds led the police on a several mile chase, during which he smoked a joint and called his family to let them know that he was going to be in jail for a little while.

Hinds even signaled to the cops that he was going to pull over, just not right this second, according to police incident logs. “The suspect then raised his finger, signaling that he would pull over in one minute,” the logbook said.

Just as Hinds was finishing his roach off, the Michigan State Police decided to finish him off. Coordinating with a police force from the nearby Shelby Township, the local fuzz boxed in Hinds. When the suspect realized the fun was over, he pulled off and let the police arrest him without incident.

Hinds knew he was going in, so he thought he might as well make the most of his last moments as a free man for some time. The suspect reportedly told police that he knew there was a warrant out for him in Florida, that he had cannabis in his car, and that he knew he was going to jail. He was also arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.

As it stands, Hinds could face time in both Michigan and Florida, since Florida can extradite him after he stands trial in Michigan.

 

 

Shelby Township police joined the pursuit and boxed in the vehicle, which slowed to a stop before the driver was arrested without incident. The driver said he knew he had a warrant out of Florida, there was marijuana in the vehicle and he knew he was going to jail, police said.

“Further investigation revealed that the driver did have multiple warrants, including the one in Florida, open alcohol and marijuana was located in the vehicle,” according to the report.

The man was arrested on suspicion of operating under the influence and lodged at Macomb County Jail, as prosecutors review the incident and before he is possibly extradited to Florida, according to police.

 

A motorist who knew he was headed for jail decided he had some unfinished business to complete before pulling over for a traffic stop on Sunday in Macomb County, police said.

The 36-year-old Clinton Township man kept driving for several miles after state troopers first attempted to pull over his Lincoln Continental because of an improper plate, according to Michigan State Police. At one point, he even put up a finger signaling he would pull over in a minute, police said..

So what was so important? He told troopers he wanted to finish his marijuana joint and call his family before he headed to jail, police said.

The man was driving southbound about 5:35 p.m. on M-53 in Washington Township, near 30 Mile Road, when troopers attempted to pull him over, police said. As a patrol car with lights and siren pursued the vehicle to 22 Mile Road, the driver motioned with a cell phone that he would pull over.

“The suspect then raised his finger, signaling that he would pull over in one minute,” according to the report in a police incident log.
