AMBRIDGE, Pa., Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said a man seen with a bulging lip during a traffic stop turned out to have 23 pieces of crack cocaine in his mouth.

Ambridge police said they pulled the pickup truck over at 2:38 p.m. because three men were inside but the vehicle only had shoulder belts for two, The Beaver County (Pa.) Times reported Tuesday.

Police said a passenger, Frank Lee Turner, 56, of Ambridge, exited the vehicle during the traffic stop and was heard mumbling with a bulging lip when he was told to return to the truck.

Officers said a piece of crack cocaine fell from Turner's mouth while he was struggling with them and he spat out 22 more individually wrapped pieces of crack cocaine when they used a Taser on him.

Turner was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and drug possession with intent to deliver.
