BREVARD COUNTY, FL (WKMG/CNN) - A central Florida woman is facing serious charges after police say she was caught with a bag of marijuana on Friday, then ate the evidence.

It was all caught on the cop car's camera.

Tavish Smith might be a happy, friendly arrestee, but this night was no laughing matter. After crashing her truck driving down the wrong way of U.S. 1, then crashing again, she giggled.

Smith wiggled out of her handcuffs, reached into the front seat and stole the sandwich bag the trooper found in her car.

She started eating it, but when she can't get back into her handcuffs, that's when she's busted.

By this time, Smith is not laughing any more.

Her misdemeanor charges for minor hit-and-run DUI and drug possession were bumped up to a felony for eating the evidence.
