Marshall County police were forced to use a taser in order to stop a drug dealer from consuming a bag of meth that was in his own.

Toney Ray Johnson, 48-year-old, was reportedly standing in the middle of the road. As cops tried to approach him, he quickly hopped on a motorcycle and turned it on leading them to a chase that only took a few minutes before he stopped the vehicle and took a big amount of drugs that he grabbed from a plastic bag.

Police were able to stop Johnson before he started eating the meth by using a stun gun on him, reports said.

Johnson is held into custody and was formally charged with several counts including drug possession and resisting arrest. His bail is set on $12,500.
