DeKALB – If only Dorian D. McGee had the chance to lick the bag clean.
Police say the 25-year-old, of the 1800 block of West Monroe Street in Chicago, ate a bag of Ecstasy on Saturday night as police tried to search him, and that a red liquid left in the bag tested positive for the drug.
He and Alfonzo L. Carter, 19, of the 800 block of Ridge Drive, were arrested after police say they set up a drug deal with the duo in the 900 block of West Lincoln Highway.
According to court records, after a K-9 officer indicated there were drugs in the car, officers also found five Ecstasy pills in it.
Carter has been charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and, if convicted, could face two to five years in prison. The case has been combined with robbery and drug possession charges for which he was out on a recognizance bond, the records show.
McGee was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, obstructing justice, resisting a police officer and aggravated resisting.
With a conviction on any of the charges other than resisting, he could face one to three years in prison.
Police say in the records that two officers scraped their knees and another was struck in the face as they tried to restrain him and keep him from eating the drugs.
Court records show that McGee was sentenced to three years’ probation for a 2014 robbery in DeKalb County, a sentence that was terminated unsatisfactorily.
A DeKalb County judge ordered during a bond hearing Sunday that both men be released from jail on their signatures, with the condition they have no contact with each other.
Carter is due back in court Oct. 31, and McGee is due back Nov. 16.
