Arrestee to Cop: ‘I’m Just Tired of This’

Police find marijuana and possible indicators of drug dealing in man’s vehicle.

A Buford man appeared nervous and possibly ready to make some significant life changes when stopped for several minor traffic violations on Dec. 6.

Derek E. Howard, 20, was driving a black Chevrolet Impala northbound on I-85 near the Mall of Georgia exit in Buford when a Gwinnet County Police officer noticed Howard fail to signal a lane change. According to the police report, Howard also failed to maintain his lane of travel and had an inoperative tail light. The officer conducted a traffic stop as Howard’s vehicle approached the Hamilton Mill exit.

Howard reportedly was very nervous when speaking with the officer. The officer noted Howard’s hands were visibly shaking and a slight odor of burnt marijuana was emanating from the vehicle. The officer then noticed a “marijuana smoking device” in the cup holder of the vehicle.
