Two men originally arrested for a traffic violation and felony warrants are caught on a Bartlesville police car's dash cam getting rid of drugs in an unusual way.

According to Bartlesville police, officers pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation at about 2:16 a.m. on April 25. The driver, 33-year-old Derek Nicholas Bock and his passenger, 35-year-old Timothy Wayne Povlick, both had active warrants for their arrest, according to the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise.

Police took both Bock and Povlick into custody and placed them in the back seat of a police car. When they reviewed dash cam footage, police say Povlick asked Bock to take baggies of meth out of his mouth, and said that one of the three baggies had broken and that he had eaten part of an "8 ball," the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reported.

Police say Bock then agreed to take the baggies and the two "exchanged a kiss" to pass the drugs from one to another.

Bock was later taken to the hospital for medical treatment. He faces charges of possession of meth, failure to yield from a stop sign and destroying evidence.

Povlick faces charges of failure to appear, possession of meth and destroying evidence.
