SALUDA COUNTY, S.C. — A college quarterback had charges of cocaine possession dropped after the white substance on his car turned out to be bird droppings.
This happened last week in Saluda County, South Carolina.
Body camera video showed Georgia Southern's starting quarterback Shai Werts arguing with an officer.
The officer said a white substance found on Werts car tested positive for cocaine.
"If anything, there'd be a one in 1,000 chance that these things are faulty, but I don't think they just turn pink," the officer said.
"I swear to God that's bird poop," Werts said.
"It's not bird poop," the officer said.
Werts was arrested and spent the night in jail, but the state tested the samples and found there were not any drugs.
Werts will still receive a speeding ticket.
He has since been reinstated with the team.
