Police: Man busted with weed stuck to face

October 17, 2009


— Police in central Pennsylvania say they’ve nabbed a real pothead.

They say an officer spotted 29-year-old Cesar Lopez inside a convenience store with a bag of marijuana stuck to his forehead.

Investigators say Lopez was seen peering into his baseball cap early Saturday morning in Lebanon, about 75 miles northwest of Philadelphia. When Lopez looked up, the officer noticed a small plastic bag appearing to contain marijuana stuck to his forehead.

Police say the officer peeled the bag off Lopez’s forehead and placed him under arrest. He has been charged with drug possession. Police do not know whether Lopez has an attorney.

Authorities say the sweatband of a baseball cap is a frequent hiding place for drugs.

Informed, I believe he is only eligible for a Darwin Honorable Mention. To win a Darwin award, his action would actually have to prove that the, um, "less capable" members of the human species do not survive.

Yeah, he'll still be able to reproduce, it appears. Small bag probably means a medium fine, and very little time in jail, if any at all.
