Jimenez's nose was swabbed and a test reportedly yielded positive results for cocaine content.

He was arrested for felony narcotics possession.

A Florida man tried to avoid arrest by telling deputies that the cocaine allegedly found on his nose "was not his", according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Fabricio Tueros Jimenez, 20, was a passenger in a vehicle that deputies pulled over about 4:30 a.m., authorities said. The deputies said they found a small bag of cocaine on Jimenez during a search.

Deputies arrested Jimenez on unspecified drug charges. One of the deputies nearly immediately spotted a white powder on his nose and identified it as cocaine.

One of the deputies noticed the white powdery substance as cocaine.

Jimenez eventually told police that the marijuana and cocaine belonged to him and admitted that he sold the marijuana for additional money.
