Wrong Place, Wrong Time
Friday, October 07, 2005
A Pennsylvania man, scheduled for a hearing on drug charges, decided he couldn't wait and sparked up in the courthouse bathroom, police say.
Luzerne County (search) Deputy Sheriff Ryan Maye told the Times-Leader of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., that he first heard the rustle of a plastic baggie coming from the next stall at about 10:45 a.m. EDT Tuesday.
Then Maye heard the sound of a lighter being struck. Within seconds, the smell of roasting marijuana filled the men's room of the magnificent neo-classical Luzerne County Courthouse in Wilkes-Barre.
"I banged on the door and ordered him to come out," Maye told the paper.
From the stall emerged a sheepish Nickolai Cinchock, 32, who was due for an 11 a.m. hearing on a recent arrest of theft and drug charges. Cinchock was tucking a pipe back into his pocket, according to Maye.
Maye and another deputy patted Cinchock down and found, in addition to marijuana, two containers with 49 Xanax (search) pills inside.
Since all parties involved were already in the courthouse, the arraignment didn't take long, and Cinchock was sent to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility down the street pending $1,000 bail.
He was given a hearing next Thursday on the new charges. There was no indication whether he planned to smoke pot before that hearing as well

Just keeping up with Nagin's Jones.
Yeah, but I think we see a pattern developing.
What a complete dumba$$. Probably a democrat or DU scumbag.
This guy is "Stuck on Stupid".
I read somewhere that Boy George has been arrested again in NY. Seems he called the police to his apartment but forgot to stash his stash.
Why do you think they call him DOPE?
Bump for later reading
Hmmm. How do those search pills work, anyway?
I had a client show up once for a hearing in Federal court, visibly stoned out of his gourd.
It was the closest I ever came to punching out a client.
Obviously this fool was not thinking clearly. Where else other than a police station would one find a higher concentration of Law Enforcement Officers than a courthouse.
So, didja get a continuance, or just punch him out for his own good?
I was at the car wash today and someone lit up a joint...guess they needed some stress relief before going back to work at the Studio. 2nd time I have seen this in a month!
No, I sat him down at the table, opened a bunch of file folders in front of him, and ordered him to make like he was reading intently during the hearing -- and not make eye contact.
It was still a close call, though.
Geez, he could have just flushed the whole thing, but no....
Hmmm....looks like a potential winner for the Darwin Award.
[cue the dulcet tones of Mac Rebennack...]
"I been in da raht place, but it musta been da wrawng tahm..."
And to think that the dope smokers believe that marijuana has no negative side effects. I guess stupidity is not a side effect they can detect (probably because they are stoned when they are testing themselves for those side effects).
