Shai Werts was pleading to the police that the white substance on his car was bird poop, yet, the police said that two different tests showed it was cocaine… On the hood of his car. First off, I am not sure how you get cocaine and bird poop mixed up. Secondly, why would there be cocaine on the hood while he’s driving? Werts apparently was right, it was indeed bird poop.
Here's an early look at my report coming up on @WJCLNews at 11 about the possession of cocaine charge against @_shaiwertss being dropped. The @GSAthletics_FB only guilty of speeding. pic.twitter.com/HnXrHxzWhl

A possession charge against Georgia Southern quarterback Shai Werts has been dropped after police determined that there was no cocaine in a substance that Werts claimed was bird poop. Authorities in Clinton County, South Carolina, pulled Werts over for speeding on July 31. When they approached the car, police saw a substance on the hood of Werts’ Dodge Charger that tested positive for cocaine in tests conducted in the field.
“Upon a thorough review of the report, the dash camera and the body camera, Deputy Solicitor Al Eargle and I made the charge should be appropriately dismissed, Solicitor Rick Hubbard said in a statement. “The charge lacks prosecutorial merit and the evidence is insufficient for the State to proceed. The charge was officially dismissed on Thursday, August 8, 2019.”
“What’s the white stuff on the front of your hood, man?” the officer can be heard once Werts was put in a police car.
“Bird ****,” he responded.
“That ain’t bird ****,” the officer responded.
“I promise you that is bird doo-doo,” Werts said.
“I promise you that it’s not, because I just tested it and it turned pink,” the officer replied.
“You can see it on the windshield,” Werts said.
