Crack Falls Out Of Man's Mouth After Foot Chase

46 year old Stephane Giberson pleaded guilty to possession of crack for the purpose of trafficking , breaching curfew, and other charges including assaulting a peace officer and resisting arrest. The court heard officers saw Giberson wandering around the Coburg and Cliff Street area trying the doors or cars and when they ran his name found him to be breaking his curfew.

Giberson then took off running and officers chased him down to Garden Street and then onto another side street. When officers cuffed Giberson on the hood of a car a rock of crack fell our of his mouth. In court Giberson complained he's been having serious medical issues including grand mal seizures for which he needs to get treatment.

Judge Henrik Tonning suggested the running around at 4am with a mouthful of crack cocaine probably wasn't helping the seizures. Giberson has been released on a promise to keep the peace and be of good behaviour.
