Man Gets Arrested for Carrying Suspicious Items, Turns Out To Be A Big Mistake

In November 2013, Alexander Bernstein was a passenger in a Mercedes-Benz that was pulled over for speeding near Allentown, New York.

Officers smelled marijuana so, they searched the car. They found packages the driver said was soap although they tested as cocaine. Bernstein was arrested and spent 29 days in jail.

Lab tests later showed it was soap. Since then, Bernstein said he has had to pay thousands of dollars in court costs and missed Thanksgiving with his toddler.

He has filed a lawsuit and is seeking damages exceeding $150,000. Named in the lawsuit are the state troopers and field test manufacturer. The driver was charged with marijuana possession and speeding.
