In March, police began pulled over Cashe for driving without headlights. Before this discovery, however, an officer noticed a powdery white substance on the car's floor and driver's seat while Cashe was in the back of a police auto.

It wasn't until three months later that Cashe was released after lab tests found that he had been telling the truth and that there were, in fact, no drugs in his vehicle.

Cashe, a handyman by trade, repeatedly explained to the officers that it was not cocaine, but rather drywall dust.

The sergeant then saw Cashe was on probation for marijuana and cocaine charges from December 2015 which he pleaded no contest. Police accused him of violating curfew.

When the officer searched Cashe's vehicle, marijuana and white powder were found on his seat and floorboard, and the officer field tested the white substance using a test kit.

Karlos Cashe, a handyman from Oviedo, Fla., lost 90 days of his life behind bars after police thought his drywall powder was crack cocaine.

He sat in jail for 90 days because he was denied bond, according to The Associated Press.

In a video of the arrest, one officer tells the other one that it looked like Cashe had just crushed up a gram of cocaine "when he saw you".

Oviedo police told CBS affiliate WKMG prosecutors sent the substance to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for lab testing. A field test came back positive. He said he told them he knew the difference because he was "a handyman". And nearly three months later, lab tests showed that the illegal substances that had been retrieved from the scene were not, in fact, illegal substances at all.

"I want some compensation for them".

But after spending three months in jail over false charges, Cashe demands answers.

However, that didn't stop cops in Florida from jailing a man for 90 days over it.
