PTC man arrested for fake cocaine, biting cop

A 19 year-old Peachtree City man was arrested April 9 on charges of committing two felonies and a misdemeanor after reportedly approaching several juveniles with fake cocaine then biting the officer attempting to take him into custody.

Corey McKoy, 19, of Peachtree City, was charged with sale of a counterfeit substance (felony), obstruction of an officer by injury (felony) and misdemeanor loitering.

Peachtree City Police spokesperson Rosanna Dove said the incident occurred April 9 at Luther Glass Park, also known as Three Ponds, located in the area of South Peachtree Parkway and Crosstown Road.

Dove said the initial call was for a suspicious subject attempting to sell drugs to children. When an officer arrived, the parent of one of the juveniles and several other juveniles were able to point out McKoy, who was still in the park, said Dove. 

Officers were told that McKoy had been talking to the juveniles and showed them a bag containing a white powdery substance, said Dove, adding that McKoy allegedly informed the juveniles that it was crack cocaine and asked if they wanted to purchase it. 

Dove said the officer approached McKoy, who denied the allegation. McKoy told the officer that he had a bag of flour that he was going to use to make muffins at a friend’s home, Dove reported.

While the officer was attempting to arrest McKoy, Dove said the 19 year-old fled the scene on foot after biting the officer on the thigh. 

Dove said McKoy was found hiding a short time later and again failed to comply with the officer’s orders and, as a result, the officer deployed his Taser which resulted in McKoy laying on the ground and complying with the orders to place him hands behind his back, Dove said.

So he's selling kids fake cocaine.
He says it is flour and he carries it around with him so he can make muffins at his friend's house.
Then he bites the officer (presumably male) on the thigh.

Think we have a nancy boy in this story.

Probably was flour! It would be worth a fortune if real and they don't carry that around as a bag of it!

If this were Lindsey Lohan, she wouldn't even have to appear!

Both need a psychiatrist--not jail.

It depends upon who you are.

Should also have charged him with talking while suspicious! No one is that stupid.

And now we have to concern ourselves with getting bit on the leg by rabid nitwit thugs out here?

Maybe punk Corey needs a leash, too. Someone should remind him he should be thankful it was only a taser and not another weapon that subdued this loser.

Perhaps he'll make his "muffins" in the jailhouse kitchen.

When you say that it is cocaine, it better be cocaine. I suppose a buyer could make a citizen's arrest over the issue.

It is never, never, never, EVER a winning proposition to bite a police officer.
