Florida Man tries the ole “The wind must have blown the cocaine into my car officer” trick to no avail
I mean sure, no one will argue that there isn’t a LOT of cocaine in Florida. But enough to where it’s just flying by freely in baggies? What would you want us to believe next? That there’s bales of the stuff washing up on our shores?
Sometimes you don’t have a lot of options and what may be the best one you have is still a really bad option. That didn’t stop my man Joseph Jeffery Zak, 37, of Port St. Lucie from one last ditch effort of throwing a hail marry of excuses and just hope the cop is an idiot. Well, it needless to say, it didn’t.
According to an arrest affidavit filed by the Fort Pierce Police Department, Zak was pulled over by authorities at 11:40 p.m. Oct. 30 when he failed to stop at an intersection.
Police said Zak made movements in an attempt to throw something away from the vehicle’s center console, the affidavit said.
According to the arrest affidavit, a search of the sedan Zak was driving revealed a crack pipe in the center console and a clear baggie filled with a white substance, WPEC reported. Police said the substance tested positive for crack cocaine, according to the arrest affidavit.
According to police, Zak said the baggie did not belong to him, asserting the “police or the wind must have placed it there,” the affidavit said.
Police charged Zak with possession of paraphernalia Oct. 31, and he was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail, WPEC reported. He is expected in court Dec. 3.
