Just not cut out for crime
It was almost midnight when the Oregon State Police got a call that a man traveling along I-5 had been shot and was trying to get away on the interstate. Troopers responded and found the car in a rest area about 20 miles South of the original report. Officers reported the Florida man seemed very nervous and paranoid. He had been driving on a flat tire and likely that had been the “shot” that scared him and caused the police call. There was a passenger in the car also from Florida and both men were of South American ancestry. When police inventoried the car, they found a stash of marijuana and nearly $30,000 in cash in a package of diapers. The intoxicated men were taken into custody. When you are scared and high, bad stuff happens.

Drug Possession Defendant Christopher Jansen, on trial in March in Pontiac, Michigan, said he had been searched without a warrant. The prosecutor said the officer didn’t need a warrant because a “bulge” in Christopher’s jacket could have been a gun. “Nonsense,” said Christopher, who happened to be wearing the same jacket that day in court. He handed it over so the judge could see it. The judge discovered a packet of cocaine in the pocket and laughed so hard he required a five-minute recess to compose himself.
