Handcuffed Marijuana Arrestee Shot, Killed In Police Car | The Weed Blog

By Phillip Smith

A Southhaven, Mississippi, man arrested for marijuana by police in nearby Jonesboro, Arkansas, was shot and killed as he sat handcuffed in the back of a squad car Saturday. Chavis Carter, 21, becomes the 37th person to die in US domestic drug law enforcement operations so far this year.

According to KAIT-8 TV, citing police sources, Carter was a passenger in a pick-up truck pulled over by police Saturday night. Officer Keith Baggett searched the vehicle, while Officer Ron Marsh searched Carter. Marsh found “some marijuana” and some plastic baggies on Carter. When police ran Carter’s name through dispatch, they learned he was wanted on a drug warrant from De Soto County, Mississippi.
