An Ohio man taken into police custody after a traffic stop made a bad situation worse when he allegedly smoked crack at the police station.

Police in Golf Manor, Ohio, brought Rodney Watkins to the station to check if he had any outstanding warrants after he allegedly presented them with false identification during the stop.

Police said Watkins smoked crack out of a pipe after he was left alone in an interview room, according to WCPO. An officer monitoring the room on surveillance cameras caught him, and Watkins was promptly arrested on charges including drug abuse and possession of paraphernalia.

Watkins is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $39,750 bond.

In July, a Florida man with a large, tribal face tattoo was arrested after police caught him allegedly smoking crack in his car. Police found assorted drugs and paraphernalia in the man's car.
