Fincher and the car’s driver, David Morris Jr., both had suspended licenses, the deputies said. During a search of the vehicle, they also found a “plastic bag filled with a blue crystal-like substance in the passenger side floorboard,” according to the report.
This is dash camera footage of the two deputies arresting David Morris Jr. and Dasha Fincher, which was obtained by news station WGXA.
Fincher said the contents of the bag was cotton candy. However, the deputies performed a Nark II roadside kit that came back positive for meth, and both Morris and Fincher were arrested. Fincher’s lawsuit alleged that the tests have a “history of producing false positive results.”
Deputies charged Fincher with trafficking meth and possession of meth with intent to distribute, and her bond was set at $1 million. She couldn’t afford the bond, so she remained in jail for three months while the GBI tested the substance.
In March 2017, the GBI said the blue material contained no controlled substances, and she was released from jail April 4. Her charges were dropped about two weeks later.
The lawsuit did not mention what happened to Morris after his arrest.
Macon-based news station WGXA obtained the court's March 30 ruling that dismissed Fincher's suit, which is embedded below.
No other information on the case was immediately available.
