Ma’am, We Don’t Accept Visa
Call it a genius move or a drunken blunder, but one Massachusetts woman had an interesting tactic when dealing with police. An officer pulled the car over for suspicion of drunken driving and found that the driver smelled of alcohol and displayed slurred speech. When the officer asked for her driver’s license, the woman offered up her debit card. The woman allegedly told the officer she had three beers that night but, because of her size, it “made her appear more drunk than she was.” She was arrested on DUI charges.
Three Strikes, You’re Out
As a correctional officer, you think this guy would know better. An ACI correctional officer was arrested last week after he reportedly sold drugs to an undercover officer not once but three times in September. The 49-year-old man allegedly sold the officer Oxycodone and Clonazepam to the officer. Police searched the man’s home and found an “assortment of prescription medications” as well as four firearms. The man was on medical leave from the ACI from a work-related injury. He was arrested and held on $20,000 bail.
Like a Mint on a Pillow
Many hotels will leave a mint or a chocolate on your pillow. One man allegedly decided to do something slightly similar this past week when he left a crack pipe in a stranger’s bed. According to reports, a Smithfield woman returned from vacation to find a crack pipe in her bed, along with copies of her prescriptions. She had left her home in the care of a dog sitter, who had reportedly invited her ex-boyfriend over to watch movies. She suspected that he had left the drug items and papers behind. Police are continuing to investigate, got no charges have been filed as there were no traces of drugs found on scene.
