The Florida Highway Patrol says a 33-year-old woman DUI suspect ate approximately 11 grams of marijuana while in the back of a patrol car.
    
Troopers say Tavish Kay Smith crashed her pickup truck on June 13.
    
Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/1rC8KsH ) reports Smith was arrested on DUI charges, her car was searched and troopers found a baggie of marijuana, which was placed in the patrol car's center console. Smith wiggled out of her handcuffs when the trooper wasn't looking, and grabbed the marijuana bag. She ate most of it before returning the bag.
    
When she scratched her nose, the trooper realized she was out of her handcuffs.
    
She told the trooper she didn't eat the pot, but video suggest otherwise.
    
But she now faces tampering with evidence charges in addition to DUI.
