SHERMAN, Texas (AP) - A video helped prosecutors obtain a North Texas man's guilty plea to drug possession after it showed him licking the powdered drug off the jail floor.
Samuel Dewayne Delmast remains in Grayson County Jail in Sherman on Tuesday. That's where he awaits transfer to the state prison system to begin serving a 16-year prison sentence after Thursday's guilty plea.
Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown says Delmast was arrested after methamphetamine was found on him during a traffic stop in Howe. That's about 50 miles north of Dallas and seven miles south of Sherman.
Surveillance video from the county jail booking area showed Delmast drop powder onto the floor, then drop to all fours and lick the powder from the floor. Brown says tests showed the powder was methamphetamine.
