John Ford was so eager to avoid arrest that he may have eaten the evidence that would help convict him.
Ford was suspected in a bank robbery during which he reportedly passed a note to one of the tellers demanding money. After police matched his car to a witness’ description, the police pulled Ford over and discovered a bag of money in his car. Afterwords while emptying his pockets, Ford grabbed a piece of paper in his mouth and proceeded to eat it. Police believe that the piece of paper may have been the ransom note he showed to the teller.
The dashboard camera in the police vehicle captured everything as Ford was pressed upon the hood of the car eating a large piece of white paper. Despite his best efforts it seems that Ford will be unable to avoid his jail time. At least in jail he won’t go hungry.
