We have gotten our hands on our fair share of sticky weed, but this is the first time we’ve heard of someone having a run in with the law because their pot got stuck to their shirt.
Unfortunately, this was the bad luck suffered by 37-year-old Jason Sproot, who was pulled over on Sunday in what has been deemed the speed trap capital of America -- Waldo, Florida (cue the "Where's Waldo" jokes) -- for, you guessed it…speeding.
What should have resulted in an expensive ticket for a minor traffic infraction took an Oh-Shit turn for the worse when the officer noticed something resembling marijuana clinging to the Sproot’s shirt.
To add to his troubles, instead of brushing the weed off his clothing and feeding the officer a hefty load of ass-saving bullshit, Sproot decided to not only tell the officer what the green substance was, but also that he had been smoking it and had more in the van. A HIGH TIMES word to the wise: Stop telling on yourself folks. No judge is going to give you a lesser sentence for being honest with the cops.
A search of the vehicle reportedly turned up several bags of marijuana, a scale and nearly $200 in cash.
Sproot was busted and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and utilizing a motor vehicle for the purpose of distribution drugs. He is currently being held on $17,500 bail.
Rumor has it that Waldo, Florida is now in the running for the astute title of Weed Trap Capital of America.
