Charges Dropped As Residue On Spoon Not Meth, Just Spaghetti Sauce

Drug charges have been dropped against a woman from Commerce, Georgia.

Ashley Gabrielle Huff, 23, was charged with possession of methamphetamine after being arrested in July by the Gainesville Police Department.

Huff maintained her innocence and said the suspect residue on a spoon found in the car at the time of her arrest was merely spaghetti sauce.

“I think she said it had been SpaghettiOs,” Gainesville Times reports Hall County assistant public defender Chris van Rossem said.

Huff was telling the truth as lab reports have confirmed the spoon did not contain any sort of drug residue, reports YJ News.

“The Crime Lab report showed no controlled substances on the spoon submitted for testing,” according to a dismissal signed by Northeastern Judicial Circuit District Attorney Lee Darragh.

Prior to Huff’s July arrest she had never been charged with any type of felony or drug-related offense.

Huff had been in the process of a plea deal before the district attorney’s office filed a dismissal following the crime lab’s analysis.

“I think what the unfortunate part about her case is that she was probably willing to take the felony to close out her case so that she get out of jail, even though she always maintained innocence,” van Rossem said.
