Driver on PCP Bails Out of Car, Passenger on PCP Follows Pirate’s Code
Any Man Who Falls Behind Is Left Behind
Police in Chester, New Jersey, reported that a driver high on PCP bailed out of his car onto Route 287, leaving another man high on PCP to take the wheel.
At 3:47 am, police stopped the car, which was driving erratically. It was not keeping in its lane, and travelling between 3 and 15 mph. The driver, 23-year-old Andre Leach of Allentown, Pennsylvania, seemed to be under the influence of narcotics. He admitted to smoking marijuana and ingesting PCP, and had two bags of pot on him, according to police. Leach failed a field sobriety test, and was arrested. Up until this point, this seems like a fairly routine DUI stop in the wee hours of the morning.

Then police asked the Leach how he came to be in Chester.
Leach said that he had come in the car with its owner, who had also been high on PCP. Then the owner dove out of the moving vehicle on an “unknown roadway.”
So, Leach just kind of took the wheel and left him. He kept driving until police pulled him over.
