An Iowa City man was charged after he allegedly ate marijuana in an attempt to hide it from police during a traffic stop.

Christopher Williams, 22, 2208 Miami Drive, was charged Nov. 12 with possession of marijuana and obstruction of prosecution.

According to a complaint by Iowa City police, Williams was stopped by officers while he was driving because his vehicle had no license plates.

The complaint said Williams was arrested after it was determined there was a warrant out for his arrest, and police obtained consent to search his vehicle.

During the search, police allegedly located a quantity of marijuana in the back seat. During the search, Williams allegedly became ill and began to vomit marijuana that he had allegedly attempted to ingest shortly after being stopped.

According to the complaint, Williams said he had attempted to conceal a bag of marijuana by eating it because he had just been released from jail and he did not want to go back.
