Bizarre traffic stop: Man swallows 80 Oxycodone pills

Williamsburg police say they pulled over a car on I-75 and noticed the five people inside appeared to be under the influence.
One of them, James Willoughby, police say swallowed 80 Oxycodone pills to hide them from police.
Investigators say that nearly killed him. Plus, the pills were in his name, so he had no reason to hide them.
Willoughby was taken to the hospital, where he's still recovering.
Police say he got the pills legally from a Florida pain clinic.
Willoughby will be charged with public intoxication. The driver of the van, Adam Baker, was charged with DUI. The other three men in the van were charged with possession of a controlled substance.
