Dasha Fincher was arrested in Monroe County, Georgia, after police officers performed an on-the-spot test of a bag of blue substance that they found in the car in which she was a passenger. The blue substance tested positive for methamphetamines. Just one problem: the blue substance wasn’t meth — it was cotton candy. Fincher would spend three months in jail because of the faulty test.
