GOLF MANOR, Ohio – A Roselawn man placed under arrest after police say he smoked crack cocaine while inside the Golf Manor police station was arraigned Monday morning and given a $39,750 bond.
Rodney Watkins, 46, was placed in police custody after a traffic stop in the 2500 block Losantiville Avenue on Saturday.
Golf Manor Officer J. Gilbert suspected Watkins, who was a passenger in the car, gave him a fake driver's license. So the officer brought Watkins back to the police station and placed him in an interview room with a sign on the door reading "audio and video surveillance on duty at all times."
Court documents state "the subject produced a glass pipe and lighter, and lit the pipe and attempted to smoke the remaining crack." There were three different cameras inside the interview room.
Officer Gilbert spotted Watkins in a monitor in another room. He then placed him under arrest for felony possession of drugs.
He was also wanted on seven warrants including a felony theft warrant and six misdemeanors.
