Officers seized 1.7 grams of crack cocaine and .7 grams of methamphetamine after pulling Ike Jr. over for an equipment violation. The arrest report noted that law enforcement noticed the headlight or taillight was out on the white 2013 Ford Fusion he was driving.

The basic traffic stop went haywire, with police accusing Tina's son of attempting to conceal the drugs by consuming them.
