Man Forced To Eat Marijuana By Police Officers

Three Phoenix Police Departmentofficers have resigned and are now involved in criminal and administrative investigations following allegations that they made a 19-year-old man eat marijuana to avoid going to jail during a traffic stop.

Phoenix Police Chief Joe Yahner identified the three officers as Richard G. Pina, Jason E. McFadden and Michael J. Carnicle, all of whom were probationary employees and had been with the department for less than one year. Yahner said “termination was inevitable” if the officers hadn’t chosen to resign on their own.
