A Florida man arrested on Sunday after trying to ditch a bag of cocaine in a flower planter has a damn good excuse for his apparent crime.
He thought it was legal. Why not? Everything else in Florida is legal.
According to Keys Net:
Guy Lanchester, 46, reportedly told Officer Darnell Sealy he didn’t know why he was being arrested: “I don’t understand. I thought cocaine wasn’t illegal in Florida.”
Sealy arrested Lanchester about 2 a.m. following a call from a Pier House security guard who saw Lanchester and two others walk onto the property, then heard a scream.
In addition to cocaine possession, Lanchester is charged with felony tampering with evidence. Sealy describes the second charge: “I asked Lanchester what he had in his hand and Lanchester quickly shoved his hands into the flower pot and yanked them back out.”
Well, at least it’s nice to know Florida stands for something. We were getting a little worried there.
