Meth charge dropped after only spaghetti sauce found on spoon


Commerce woman released after lab analysis backs her SpaghettiOs claim


View Quote

Drug charges have been dropped against a Commerce woman after crime lab analysis confirmed her claim that a spoon she had in a vehicle leading to her arrest did not contain methamphetamine residue but spaghetti sauce.

Ashley Gabrielle Huff, 23, initially was charged with possession of methamphetamine. She maintained the residue on a spoon was spaghetti sauce, not meth.

After the analysis agreed, the charge was dismissed. She was released from the Hall County Jail on Thursday night.

"I think she said it had been SpaghettiOs,” Hall County assistant public defender Chris van Rossem said.

Huff was arrested July 2 by the Gainesville Police Department, suspected of having meth residue on a spoon, van Rossem said.

"From what I understand, she was a passenger in a car and had a spoon on her, near her, and I guess the officer, for whatever reason, thought there was some residue,” he said.

According to the Hall County Comprehensive Justice Information System, Huff had not been charged with any type of felony or drug-related offense prior to the incident.

"She’s maintained all along that there’s no way in hell that’s any sort of drug residue or anything like that,” van Rossem said.

Attempts to obtain the original arrest report from the Gainesville Police were unsuccessful, and van Rossem was unfamiliar with other details related to the arrest. Gainesville Police spokesman Cpl. Kevin Holbrook said the department would defer to the district attorney’s office.

Van Rossem, who was assigned Aug. 11 to Huff, began the process of a plea deal. The district attorney’s office filed a dismissal Thursday following the crime lab’s analysis.

"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.

Huff originally attempted going through the Hall County Drug Court but wasn’t able to make all the appointments, van Rossem said. Huff was then reincarcerated Aug. 2 and was unable to make the bond payment, he said.

"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.

Attempts to reach Huff through her public defender were unsuccessful.

That's fucked up.

If we have something we think is drugs but can't field test it we releasrhe suspect, then send the substance to the tox lab. If it comes back positive then we get an arrest warrant.

A cop gave a friend of mine a hard time over a spoon on the floor of his car last winter. Nevermind all of the other garbage in the car. That spoon must be drug paraphernalia.

Gainesville is the chicken capital of the world...at least they claimed it was when I lived in Winder in the '70s.
Big chicken statue in the middle of town to celebrate it.

Cop arrested her because he thought she was committing or had just committed a crime.

And the basis for this suspicion was the possession of a spoon in her car?


Sounds like wrongful arrest to me.

It just goes to show you that nobody is innocent until proven guilty. Incarceration for for a dirty spoon with no evidence of the "suspected" meth.

The spoon had better be burnt to hell on the bottom also before we start busting someone's balls over residue.

In case any of you don't know, this is typical, everyday behavior for GA cops.


The cop should get tossed in gen pop for a few years for this stunt, but he won't.

What will probably happen is this young woman will wonder why she never gets calls back from HR for jobs she has applied for now that her picture has been published and is on the internet with the phrase "arrested and charged with felony meth possession" next to it.

Drug warriors, may fuck be upon them.

No,she may be a thief or prostitute or who knows what,but she was almost railroaded for no reason,and there is no history of drug busts to back it up.If she had some drug convictions in the past,it might be a different story.

Kind of scary when you have a cop out there willing to bust someone for a dirty spoon-make damn sure you keep your car spotless in case you ever get pulled over-not even a new air freshener for shits sake.

But they won't and people will give one less fuck about cops when they get hurt. Then good cops will get butthurt when nobody gives a fuck. The vicious cycle continues.
