A handcuffed man tried to lunge with his mouth for a bag of suspected crack cocaine that was on top of a squad car early Monday, reports said.

Officers were arresting Steve Gardner, 34, of Youngstown, about 12:05 a.m. after he was accused of violating a criminal trespass order at a home in the 500 block of East Florida Avenue on the South Side.

When police searched Gardner, reports said they found a bag of crack cocaine on him and placed him under arrest. They then put the bag on top of a cruiser, reports said.

Gardner then tried to grab the bag with his mouth before he was stopped.
