You know what “disc golf” is, right? It’s a sport that combines throwing a Frisbee over a course modeled after a golf course, and tends to attract a little more of a “psychedelic” crowd than regular golf.
How psychedelic? One guy who claims to have participated in a disc golf tournament in Montana and was driving home to Kentucky was pulled over by South Dakota cops. The cop’s drug dog detected something unusual in the vehicle and after a search, officers found 78.5 lbs of marijuana hidden in a rear passenger’s door and the luggage rack.
The real question: if he was going home with that much weed, how much did he start the tournament with? And, more importantly, does he even remember competing?
The accused, Jeffery Layland, faces felony for possession with intent to distribute one pound or more of marijuana and two misdemeanor charges for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A man claiming to be a professional disc golfer was arrested east of Rapid City Monday after a South Dakota Highway Patrol officer found 78.5 pounds of marijuana in his sports utility vehicle. Jeffrey Layland, 30, of Bowling Green, Ky., was stopped for speeding at mile post 67 by patrolman Matthew Oxner.
According to Oxner’s probable cause affidavit, Layland told Oxner he was returning from a professional disc golf tournament in Missoula, Mont. Layland refused to let Oxner search his SUV. Oxner’s drug dog detected the marijuana during a perimeter search of the vehicle. A search of the SUV and its Yakima rack revealed the marijuana stowed in a rear passenger’s door and the luggage rack.
Man, this clod can’t even get arrested for something of NFL caliber like cocaine or even 100 lbs of weed. He’s arrested for having extra strength Robitussen.! What next, stealing some kid’s lunch money?
Former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell was arrested today and accused of possession of a controlled substance, according to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office. The substance was codeine syrup, spokeswoman Lori Myles said.
Myles said Russell was arrested at his home early this afternoon during an undercover investigation. Police did not find a prescription for the codeine during their search, Myles said. Other people were on the property, but Russell was the only one arrested, according to Myles.
UPDATE: Have you ever heard comedian Chris Rocks’ take on the power of Robitussin?
The long “naughty cheerleader” dry spell is over with the busting of two girls at Taft High School in Texas. Yeah!
One of the girls got caught in your typical drug bust for smoking weed. The other, however, was showing off her entrepreneurial spirit at school by selling wristbands using social media (in this case Facebook.) Unfortunately, the wristbands were not for a squad fundraiser or local charity event. According to school officials the effort was a way to make money to pre-pay for booze at a party the cheerleader was having. One of those great “Seems Like a Good Idea at the Time” stories.
Two cheerleaders at Taft High School were busted for promoting parties and having drugs on campus. A 17-year old cheerleader was suspended for three days after posting Facebook updates about selling wristbands for a party serving alcohol. Ann*, a concerned parent, says her student was confronted by the teen at school.
“She said, hey would you like to buy one? So she asked what it was for, and [the cheerleader] was like, to buy alcohol for the party,” Ann said. This comes on the heels of another investigation of a different cheerleader who was arrested for having marijuana on campus. “This student was assigned to the alternate high school as a consequence for this offense,” explains Northside ISD spokesperson Pascual Gonzalez. “Because it was a first time offense, she is back at Taft High School now.”
