Man admits to using bath salts to police
BATON ROUGE - A 24-year-old man admitted to using bath salts to an LSU police officer after he was driving 10-15 mph under the speed limit, according to LSU PD Capt. Corey Lalonde.
Lalonde says Gregory Powell was driving northbound on Nicholson Drive when an LSU police officer noticed a car driving onto the shoulder of the road well under the speed limit.
The officer then initiated a traffic stop, and Powell admitted to ingesting bath salts. The officer attempted to do a field sobriety test but Powell was too intoxicated to try. Powell was then transported to LSU PD. EMS then transported Powell to a local hospital where he agreed to a blood test.
Powell was then booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and charged with DWI and improper lane usage. Powell is not an LSU student, according to Lalonde.
