Wayne Mitchell died after police said he ate cocaine hidden in his brother Deangelo Mitchell's backside.
The bizarre incident started after both brothers were taken into custody in Charleston, South Carolina on allegations that they had drugs in their car, but there were additional drugs hidden in 23-year-old Deangelo's backside.
Officers said, while the two were in jail, Deangelo convinced his brother, 20-year-old Wayne, to swallow the ounce of cocaine to hide the evidence. He died soon afterward.
North Charleston Police Chief Jon Zumalt told WCIV: "It's sickening. I got upset when I saw the thing. I was pretty shocked on it."
Deangelo bonded out of jail on the drug charge, but now police are looking for him again on charges of involuntary manslaughter.
