Florida or Florida, you never fail to disappoint me. A homeless man was arrested after he was found to be in possession of methamphetamine. According to authorities, during his arrest, the man hilariously told the officer to call the FBI and the local police department. Why? Because according to him, he has special permission to carry meth. Yes just him, no one else in the world is allowed to carry meth except him.
50-year-old Robert Lawson was seen loitering near a wooded area that is close to a business. He was approached by a deputy of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and consented to a quick search during his encounter.
That’s when a small bag containing crystal substances was found and tested positive for methamphetamine. The bag was found in Lawson’s packet of cigarettes. The deputy also went on to find a grocery bag with a brown liquid residue inside. According to police, after he was read his rights, he demanded the deputy make some phone calls. Yes, one of those was to none other than the FBI and another to the Saint Petersburg Police Department.
Obviously, instead of placing those said calls, the deputy arrested him. Because we all know this is a big fat lie. He was quickly charged with felony drug possession and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. As expected, this wasn’t his first run-in with a police officer. Some of his past convictions include battery, trespassing, consuming alcohol in a city park, and possession of drug paraphernalia. All this in a span of 50 years mind you, so this is nothing strange to him.
I really got to commend him though, because he went out with a bang. He really thought that the deputy was going to believe him that the FBI had his back. These Florida homeless men are getting out of hand.
Stay classy Florida.
