When Heartburn is Against the Law
From my civic association’s police blotter:
(ARREST) On Wednesday, 06/10/09, 7:50 PM, 6th District bicycle patrol Officers Ferrero and Cullen observed a male smoking a marijuana cigarette in the 1200 block Chancellor St. As the officers approached, the male ate the cigarette. The male was taken into custody and a plastic bag containing marijuana was recovered from his pant’s pocket. The 34 year old offender with an out-of-state address was charged with Possession of Marijuana and Tampering with Evidence.
Tampering with evidence. For swallowing a lit cigarette. That, my friends, is a cop in a bad mood.
