A man accused of drunkenness and making a scene at a Peachtree Corners-area Waffle House allegedly asked patrons if they wanted to buy some cocaine.
According to a Gwinnett County police incident report, officers responded to a person drunk complaint on March 17 at the Waffle House, located at 7044 Jimmy Carter Boulevard.
Police saw a parked Chevrolet Suburban in the parking lot, with one man standing next to the front passenger’s door and another behind the wheel, with the engine running. The man behind the wheel, Samual Nedi of Clarkston, quickly jumped out of the driver’s seat when he saw police, according to the incident report.
Witnesses identified Nedi as the perpetrator.
At one point, one of the witnesses, a restaurant employee, motioned for an officer to come talk to her. She said Nedi “had been walking around to customers inside the Waffle House, asking them if they wanted to buy some cocaine,” according to the incident report.
An officer noted a strong odor of alcohol on Nedi, who “appeared to be very intoxicated” and was slurring his words.
When asked if his vehicle can be searched, Nedi reportedly said, “Go ahead. You can search. I got nothing.”
Officers found a plastic baggie containing a small amount of white power, which field-tested positive for cocaine.
He was arrested and charged with DUI and cocaine possession.
