Florida Man Tells Police Was Swerving Because He Was Doing Drugs
Many say texting while driving causes erratic motoring behavior.
Via Off Beat TCPalm reports:
It could be argued that rolling a marijuana “blunt” while driving produces a similar effect.
It’s a conclusion that might be drawn from the Feb. 6 arrest of 26-year-old James Antoine.
St. Lucie County Sheriff’s officials pulled Antione over after noticing his Nissan swerving on St. James Drive in Port St. Lucie, an affidavit states. It swerved to the middle of the road, and then to the right.
While searching the Nissan, investigators found marijuana, powder cocaine and crack cocaine, items generally frowned upon by law enforcement officials.
During an interview with sheriff’s officials, Antoine said he was swerving because he was rolling a marijuana “blunt” while driving.
Blunt refers to a marijuana cigarette rolled with a cigar wrapper.
Antoine explained the pot odor in the vehicle by saying “he just smoked before being stopped.”
He also said the cocaine and marijuana belonged to him.
