The Drug Whisperer: The Case Files Police Denied Existed
Earlier this year, we uncovered the story of The Drug Whisperer. Now, we have found even more cases Cobb County Police originally wouldn’t let us see and denied even existed.
COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Could you be arrested for driving stoned, even when you’re completely sober?
Police across the nation are getting Drug Recognition Expert training that they say is better than a lab test.
Earlier this year, we uncovered the story of Cobb County Police Officer Tracy Carroll – or as we referred to him, The Drug Whisperer. Now, we have found even more cases from the Cobb County Police Department, that they originally wouldn’t let us see and denied even existed.
In three separate cases that we profiled last spring, Officer Carroll pulled over motorists and insisted that they were under the influence of marijuana.
Cobb County Police Officer T.T. Carroll: “You don’t smoke marijuana?”
Katelyn Ebner: “I do not, no.”
Kunle Oriyomi: “I don’t smoke weed, actually.”
Officer Carroll: “So you’re saying that you haven’t consumed any marijuana?”
Princess Mbamara: “No, sir.”
Officer Carroll: “All right. Well, I don’t believe you’re telling me the truth, okay? Because I’m seeing some involuntary indicators that you’ve consumed marijuana, okay?”
Officer Carroll, a certified Drug Recognition Expert, did not believe these drivers. All three of them gave their blood to prove their innocence.
Princess Mbamara: “Is there a way you can test me right now?”
Kunle Oriyomi: “Yes, yeah. Yeah.”
Officer Carroll: “Okay.”
Kunle Oriyomi: “Without question, we can do it right now.”
Katelyn Ebner: “I can give you a drug test right now. I can guarantee I don’t smoke marijuana.”
