(Court TV) — The threat of drowning had no bearing on Yaysn Abdul-Mattin and his alleged efforts to smoke his crack pipe.

According to a police report, highway patrol officers in Suffolk County, N.Y., spotted the 32-year-old man driving erratically at 12:16 a.m., Aug. 13. A chase ensued when Abdul-Mattin refused to stop.

The chase ended when Abdul-Mattin drove into a private driveway, went through the backyard and plunged his car into a pond. Then things got bizarre.

Although his car was sinking, Abdul-Mattin remained inside the vehicle and attempted to light his crack pipe, police say. He also ignored the officers who commanded him to exit the vehicle.

The car was almost completely submerged before Abdul-Mattin decided to budge. He crawled out through the rear window that an officer had broken.

He was arrested and charged with driving while impaired and released without bail.

The responding officers should have let him drown.

Drug abuse is a self-correcting problem and these officers interrupted the process.
