A Maryland man alleged to have cocaine on his face and clothes and be driving while drunk was arrested after he told an officer he thought he was in Chicago, a Maryland State Police spokesman said on Wednesday.
Artis Ray Gordon, 69, of Baltimore, was arrested on Friday night when a state trooper responded to a car accident outside of Baltimore, the spokesman said.
A trooper found Gordon sitting behind the wheel of his car with the engine running. He noticed "a trail of a white powdery substance, suspected cocaine, on his nose and around his nostrils, around his mouth and chin, on the front of his shirt and the front of his pants," according to charging documents
Gordon's speech was slurred and he appeared disoriented, the documents said.
