CONYERS, Ga., Aug. 14 (UPI) -- A Georgia man who allegedly had a two-foot sword in his pants was happy to see a Rockdale County sheriff's deputy because he wanted assistance with a small issue.

However, that joy likely turned to dismay after the Conyers man was arrested on drug charges.

Ryan Coleman allegedly flagged down Deputy Bradford Lockridge by flagging his arms and acting as if he was in distress.

When the officer stopped, the 37-year-old approached his vehicle and began "talking very rapidly and incoherently," the Rockdale Citizen reported.

Coleman then "stated that a bug flew into his eye and he bent over to look at his eye in the mirror on my passenger door," Lockridge wrote in a report.

After a brief conversation, Lockridge noticed a meth pipe in the suspect's waistband. When asked about the pipe, Coleman first attempted to conceal it and then tried to break it.

Lockridge cuffed him after a brief struggle and then found another pipe in Coleman's pocket and a silver sword in his pants that "ran down his leg from his waistband."

Coleman was arrested and charged with possession and use of drug-related objects, possession of a controlled substance and obstruction of an officer.
