Man Sentenced for Trying to Swallow Pot

A Buffalo man who tried to swallow marijuana during a traffic stop in Olean last March has pleaded guilty.

Police say they stopped 34-year-old Christopher Booker for a traffic violation and learned that he swallowed an unknown quantity of marijuana. He was taken to Olean General Hospital for observation, and later charged with tampering with physical evidence, a misdemeanor. Police stopped him for not using a turn signal.

He was sentenced to one year of conditional discharge.
