A man was arrested on a charge of drug possession after allegedly being in possession of cocaine during a traffic stop, according to police in Florida.

Port St. Lucie police said that they have arrested 57-year-old Arnold Lisansky, after cocaine fell out of his arm cast in front of police officers.

Lisansky was charged with one count of drug possession.

According to the police, on Tuesday, officers pulled over Lisansky, while he was driving his Dodge pickup truck on the 3200 block of South US 1, for a defective brake light.

Lisansky spoke with the police when he gestured with his hand.

At that moment, a piece of white rock fell out of his arm cast.

The substance was tested, and it turned out to be cocaine.

Lisansky apologized, saying that he thought that he had disposed all the cocaine earlier in the day.
