Police Say Suspected Drunk Driver Tried to Swallow Drug Bag
One guy stopped for drunk driving several days ago in La Crosse may still be suffering some indigestion issues. Cops say they stopped Erwin Beckom for drunk driving after bartime on Thursday. It would be his third offense. A little extra trouble for cocaine possession. At least police believe it was cocaine, because Beckom apparently swallowed a bag of it during the traffic stop. He spit out the bag and some of the remnants left inside. Some of that landed on an officer's boot. Which tested positive for coke. Beckom was taken to the hospital before going to jail.
