Florida woman spends month in jail after cops mistake SpaghettiOs for meth


SpaghettiO no they didn’t!

After a month behind bars, A Florida woman was freed when lab results backed her claim that residue on a spoon she was in possession of was SpaghettiOs and not meth.

23-year-old Ashley Gabrielle Huff was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamines but she maintained the entire time that what was found was not meth, but instead, spaghetti sauce.

Hall County assistant public defender Chris van Rossem told the Gainesville Times:

“From what I understand, she was a passenger in a car and had a spoon on her, near her, and I guess the officer, for whatever reason, thought there was some residue. She’s maintained all along that there’s no way in hell that’s any sort of drug residue or anything like that… I think she said it had been SpaghettiOs.”

Huff tried to go through the drug court program in spite of her innocence, but was unable to attend all of her appointments. Because of her absence, she was reincarcerated and unable to make bond.

“I think what the unfortunate part about her case is that she was probably willing to take the felony to close out her case so that she could get out of jail, even though she always maintained innocence,” van Rossem added.

Huff had never faced any drug-related charges before this SpaghettiOs mix-up.
