George Diaz, 36, of Dorchester, was arraigned on several Massachusetts Felony Crimes Charges at his hospital bed after allegedly swallowing the drugs.
According to the Weymouth Police Department, Diaz, who was reportedly under investigation for several weeks on suspicion of selling drugs out of his home, was allegedly observed by officers to have engaged in a street-level drug transaction. Officers then followed him to a gas station, where he then allegedly tried pulling away as the officers approached, nearly hitting them.
When officers finally caught up to him, Diaz allegedly swallowed an unknown amount of drugs. Following his arrest, George Diaz was taken to South Shore Hospital in an effort to recover the drugs he allegedly swallowed.
Diaz was formally arraigned at his hospital bed and charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, Failure to Stop for Police, Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Resisting Arrest, and Larceny Under $250.
Pending recover of any drugs, Diaz had not formally been charged with any Massachusetts Drug Crimes.
