DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Police say a central Kentucky man facing drug-related charges tried to chew and swallow the evidence.
 
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the Danville man, Royce T. Booker, allegedly tried to consume a substance that appeared to be cocaine when an officer approached him in a restaurant parking lot.
 
The incident happened when police were summoned to the restaurant Friday night to investigate an alleged drug deal.
 
A police officer used a Taser to subdue the 44-year-old Booker.
 
Booker was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
