Fabricio Tueros Jimenez, 20, was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over by two deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, in the US.

Tests confirmed Ms Rossi’s suspicions and, though further cocaine was found on his person, Jimenez had a surprising take on the powder on his face.

According to the Facebook post: “Jimenez was arrested without incident but he attempted to tell the deputies the cocaine on his nose was not his!!!”

Deputies also found a bag containing 250 grams of marijuana and 13 Xanax pills in the car.

Jimenez was arrested on drug charges.
