A man accused of drug possession may not have a leg to stand on in court.

That's because authorities say they found crack and marijuana hidden in his prosthetic leg.

Police in Wilmington, Del., arrested Jose Santiago on Friday after responding to a 911 call for a disorderly subject. When officials arrived on the scene, they saw Santiago, 51, in the middle of the street, reported.

Santiago seemed to be intoxicated and was yelling obscenities, but was taken into custody without incident, Officer Mike Ivey told Delaware Online.

Upon booking, the cops discovered Santiago had several outstanding arrest warrants. He also allegedly had 2.5 grams of crack cocaine and 2.8 grams of marijuana hidden inside his prosthetic leg, the Associated Press reported.

Santiago was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of crack cocaine and disorderly conduct, and is being held at police headquarters pending arraignment.
