A Georgia woman is suing after the GBI found that the blue substance in her car that led to her spending three months in jail was not methamphetamine — it was cotton candy.
According to Macon-based WMAZ-TV, Dasha Fincher has filed a lawsuit in federal court against the board of commissioners in Monroe County, two deputies and the manufacturer (Sirchie Acquisition Company) of a drug test administered during her traffic stop.
The incident report, obtained by WMAZ, said David Morris Jr. was riding with Fincher in the passenger seat on New Year’s Eve 2016 when deputies Cody Maples and Allen Henderson pulled them over for a window tint violation.
The lawsuit, also obtained by the news station, said the deputies told them the car’s window tint didn’t end up violating the law after they were pulled over.
Fincher and Morris allegedly had suspended licenses, and when the deputies searched the car they found a “plastic bag filled with a blue crystal-like substance in the passenger side floorboard,” the report said.
The report described Fincher as “shaking” and “very anxious” when asked about the contents of the baggie, and she said it was cotton candy.
