South Carolina police have arrested eight people for weed posession and distribution today in association with those November pictures taken of Michael Phelps. Seven were arrested for possession, one for distribution and the no famous bong was confiscated.
The owner was reportedly trying to sell the bong on eBay for $10, 000. Wow. $10, 000! Of course, the police going after these kids has been a huge point of controversy for everyone following the case because, c’mon, it’s a bit ridiculous.
According to an article in WIS News 10 in Columbia, SC:
Lott says the picture indicated a law was being broken in his jurisdiction. He said he couldn’t ignore the violation just because Phelps is rich and famous. We’ve now learned that since investigators began trying to build a case, they’ve made eight arrests: seven for drug possession and one for distribution. These are arrests that resulted as the sheriff’s department served search warrants. We’ve also learned that the department has located and confiscated that bong.
Wow. Well we’re sure the citizens of South Carolina are safer now because of these pot head college students have been arrested. In other news, Taco Bell has reported a loss in late night sales.
