A drug charge has been dropped against a Georgia Southern quarterback after a white substance he identified as bird poop on his car’s hood tested negative for cocaine.

A Saluda County Sheriff’s Office police report said deputies pulled Shai Werts over for speeding July 31 and noticed two white spots on his car they thought were cocaine. The report says Werts told them it was bird poop he had tried to wash off. The deputies then did a field test that came back positive for cocaine and charged him with possession of the drug.

Werts’ lawyer Townes Jones IV told The Savannah Morning News more sophisticated lab testing showed the substance was not cocaine and the drug charge was dropped.

Werts, the Eagles’ starting quarterback, was suspended from the team for two days before returning to practice on Sunday.

Field tests taken by two different officers on the substances tested positive for cocaine with two different kits, in two different spots of the hood.

Two different tests done by two different officers, BOTH positive?! Firstly, how does bird shit someone tried to scrub off their hood at all resemble cocaine, and secondly, what's up with these field tests that 2 had such wrong results?

Either there's a major flaw with their test kits/collection methods, or there's birds flying around out there with powdery beaks. :woot:

Why would someone have cocaine on the paint/finish of their car, and since he was pulled over for speeding, what could possible make the cops consider white splattered stains on a car's finish to be cocaine? o_O

Going with either the field tests being done improperly (ie: the *order* of the reagents used in field tests is very important), or both test kits came from the same manufacturer/lot numbers, and were faulty AF.

freaks, these hand held tests are notoriously unreliable, now everye is gonna be looking for big bird & snorting birdshit to get high will be worse than the tide pods
Great way to weed out the idiots.

Examples of transmissible bird diseases associated with pigeons, geese, starling and house sparrows:

  • Histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease that may be fatal. It results from a fungus growing in dried bird droppings.
  • Candidiasis is a yeast or fungus infection spread by pigeons. The disease affects the skin, the mouth, the respiratory system, the intestines and the urogenital tract, especially the vagina. It is a growing problem for women, causing itching, pain and discharge.
  • Cryptococcosis is caused by yeast found in the intestinal tract of pigeons and starlings. The illness often begins as a pulmonary disease and may later affect the central nervous system. Since attics, cupolas, ledges, schools, offices, warehouses, mills, barns, park buildings, signs, etc. are typical roosting and nesting sites, the fungus is apt to found in these areas.
  • St. Louis Encephalitis, an inflammation of the nervous system, usually causes drowsiness, headache and fever. It may even result in paralysis, coma or death. St. Louis encephalitis occurs in all age groups, but is especially fatal to persons over age 60. The disease is spread by mosquitoes which have fed on infected house sparrow, pigeons and house finches carrying the Group B virus responsible for St. Louis encephalitis.
  • Salmonellosis often occurs as "food poisoning" and can be traced to pigeons, starlings and sparrows. The disease bacteria are found in bird droppings; dust from droppings can be sucked through ventilators and air conditioners, contaminating food and cooking surfaces in restaurants, homes and food processing plants.
  • E.coli. Cattle carry E. coli0157:H7. When birds peck on cow manure, the E. coli go right through the birds and the bird droppings can land on or in a food or water supply.
Besides being direct carriers of disease, nuisance birds are frequently associated with over 50 kinds of ectoparasites, which can work their way throughout structures to infest and bite humans. About two-thirds of these pests may be detrimental to the general health and well-being of humans and domestic animals. The rest are considered nuisance or incidental pests.

remind you of my very true plant food in the canister story? still cant believe that shit; if I put what little amount of plant food that came with some flowers in a canister that I then meticulously label plant food with a white stick on label, you'd think douches would have the sense if they were going to invade my space of not snorting it when i was no there [landlords buddy ended up in the hospital]

Or the rag he used in his attempt to remove the birdshit had coke on it.

I just can't believe anyone would think a discoloration on the outside of a car was drugs.

You've never driven around with coke on your hood and windshield?

From this article here - These points came from a writer I've been reading for years -

Reliability issues with the test themselves notwithstanding -
  • Do the officers who pulled Werts over really believe that cocaine would remain on the hood of a car after that car was driven at 80 miles per hour? What manner of consuming cocaine would cause the cocaine to stick to the hood? I’m having a difficult time imagine any interaction with the drug that would result in portions of it being stuck to the hood of a car in a manner that could withstand wind at 80 miles per hour.
  • Given all of that, why would these deputies see a white substance on the hood, and immediately assume it was cocaine, rather than the dozen or so other more likely explanations? Have they ever mistaken bird poop for cocaine before? Why would they decide that this was a substance that needed to be tested at all?
  • Is it possible that they were influenced by — and I’m just spit-balling here — the fact that Werts was a young black guy driving a sports car?
  • Even if it was cocaine, how did they plan to tie it to Werts? It would be one thing if that powder was inside the car. But were they prepared to hold the man liable for a substance on the outside of his car — and could have come from anywhere?
If I were Werts, I’d consider getting another lawyer. Perhaps one who’s a little more skeptical of local law enforcement.

Finally, if you’ve been reading my work for a while, you know that I’ve been keeping a list of substances that have resulted in false positives from these tests. Here’s the list: Sage, chocolate chip cookies, motor oil, spearmint, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap, tortilla dough, deodorant, billiards chalk, patchouli, flour, eucalyptus, breath mints, loose-leaf tea, Jolly Ranchers, vitamins, Krispy Kreme doughnut glaze, air, Tylenol, just about every brand of chocolate at your local convenience store, dry wall, BC powder, cotton candy, powdered sugar, and now . . . bird poop.https://dreamindemon.com/community/threads/bird-shit-or-cocaine-cops-say-impossible-to-tell.107233/
These cops know the tests are bullshit but they come in really handy when they want probable cause to fuck with whoever they decide needs to be tuned up.

Like they say - You can beat the rap but you can't beat the ride.

Are cops not trained anymore? I can't believe that any officer would mistake bird poop (with specks of green!) for coke. But then again officers of the 'law' have done worse.

It does not escape my notice that the young man is black.

I posit that the officers were also cognizant of that fact.

The milk ain’t clean, here. Nope.
