Jail for man who fought cops, vomited pot
April 16, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Travell Council

The man who prosecutors say vomited up a bag of marijuana in the county jail after his Christmas Eve arrest for fighting and evading San Mateo police searching his friend’s car was sentenced to a year in jail for obstruction.

Travell Council, 20, pleaded no contest to the single felony in return for the year plus three years probation. He already has 224 days credit amassed while in custody on $50,000 bail.

Prosecutors also dropped other charges including assault on a police officer and bringing narcotics into the jail.

Officers arrested Council Dec. 24 after pulling over the car in which he was a passenger. The driver initially fled police which allowed them to search the vehicle as he was on parole. During the search, Council allegedly jumped into the driver’s seat, started the ignition and punched at the officer trying to grab him. Another ultimately shot Council with a stun gun to no effect and he fled but was discovered with the help of a K-9 about an hour later on a nearby roof.

While being booked into custody at Maguire Correctional Facility, Council reportedly regurgitated a bag of marijuana he swallowed.
