Benz was booked into jail where he remained on $5,000 bond, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn’t available.

Deputies were clearing residents from the Golden Gate Estates neighborhood where the 5,500-acre fire was approaching when they spotted Benz walking in the middle of the street, NBC 2 reported.

Benz motioned for a deputy to stop his patrol car and walked up to the deputy and snorted the cocaine from a plastic bag, officials said.

Benz turned around with his hands behind his back and stood there with the bag still in his hand, officials said. He was taken into custody.
